ColumbiaDoctors Expands Into Westchester County

ColumbiaDoctors, the multi-specialty medical practice comprised of more than 1,200 faculty of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, College of Dental Medicine and School of Nursing, recently became one of the largest medical practices in Westchester with its acquisition of North Star Medical Group. “Many of the top doctors in Westchester are P&S alumni and already have strong relationships with us. Integrating these practices with ColumbiaDoctors improves the experience for patients, especially when they need care by multiple specialists,” said Dr. Lee Goldman, dean of the Faculties of Health Sciences and Medicine at CUMC. Nine offices specializing in family medicine, internal medicine, gastroenterology and pulmonary medicine join Columbia’s existing network throughout the New York metropolitan area. The northward expansion represents the latest phase in the growth of the faculty practice. New offices on West 51st Street near Rockefeller Center in Manhattan opened in 2013, adding about 25 percent greater capacity than the former location on Manhattan’s East Side. ColumbiaDoctors Midtown now sees more than 1,000 patients a day, offering X-rays and other imaging, laboratory services, primary care and several other specialties.
