The New BMS@Dumont Urgent Care Center Will Open Soon!
BMS Family Health and Wellness Centers will open soon the new BMS Dumont Urgent Care Center (located at 407 Dumont Ave; Brooklyn, NY 11212) to provide care on an unscheduled walk-in basis to individuals with acute, non-emergency conditions. The Center will offer six exam rooms, as well as lab services (phlebotomy,) imaging, and mammography services.
This will be the first urgent care center operated by a stand-alone Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in North and Central Brooklyn, serving low-income communities with elevated rates of health disparities in Brownsville and East New York.
Patients who do not have a medical home or usual source of care will be provided with information and assistance in selecting a primary care provider that meets their needs (location, specialty services, hours, language access).
In addition to urgent care, the center will provide:
Medical lab and testing (phlebotomy)
The community will also benefit from the opportunity to be connected to a regular source of care, and health centers (BMS and others) will benefit by enrolling and serving previously unserved patients.
