Rye Brook, NY (July 24, 2018) – Yale New Haven Health Northeast Medical Group (NEMG) in collaboration with Greenwich Hospital hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday to officially open the Northeast Medical Group Multispecialty Center in Rye Brook, NY.

The Rye Brook facility offers a variety of services including pediatrics, primary care and walk-in with x-ray imaging. Additional specialty care services will include cardiology, pediatric urology, rheumatology, podiatry and sleep medicine. Lab services will be provided by Greenwich Hospital.

“We are excited to expand our current array of services in Rye Brook.

We are proud that our physicians are consistently rated high in patient satisfaction, and many are recognized as Top Doctors in the state.”
