CareMount Medical is the largest, independent multispecialty group in NY State, providing comprehensive medical care to over 665,000 patients in more than 45 offices, 8 urgent care centers, and 15 procedural and surgical suites, as well as an ambulatory surgery center. Our vast 120 mile service area from NYC to Kingston, NY offers care to patients from all socioeconomic strata. Our physicians and nurses are integrally involved in community outreach clinics as well as several international volunteer organizations. While Coronavirus is rampaging through the NYC and Hudson Valley regions, patients are still getting cancer, sustaining fractures, having debilitating pain, and require maintenance and follow up of severe medical conditions. While CareMount has minimized non-essential care and consolidated facilities, they continue to take care of both their sickest patients who would suffer without medical attention, as well as those with urgent and emergent needs.
The Scheinberg Relief Fund is not only helping our patients, but helping control the spread of Coronavirus in the State with the highest patient impact. The PPE and funds will allow CareMount to safely provide healthcare services to patients within our communities during this crisis. This critically important support not only help us protect patients from infection but ultimately alleviates the incredibly overburdened hospitals in our communities. CareMount is grateful for the support of the Scheinberg Relief Fund which is helping to buoy our overstretched healthcare system.
