The largest healthcare provider in the NYC area, CityMD, recently announced the temporary closure of twelve of its locations. Nearly 20 locations are now closed. The closures were attributed to staffing problems. Other COVID vaccination and testing centers have been forced to close due to a shortage of workers, as a result of the virus. Fortunately, there are a variety of options to see a doctor in the New York area.
The closures affect 19 locations in New York, including 13 in Manhattan and three in Westchester County. The company is directing patients to locations near them. The company has closed a number of locations before, including three in New Jersey and one in Long Island. Despite the recent closings, the organization’s services remain the same. The New York clinics will continue to operate, but you should expect that many of the same doctors will no longer be working for them.
In addition to New York City, CityMD has 153 locations nationwide, with the seven in the five boroughs. Since it is an urgent care clinic, it offers a wide range of treatments and services for patients. However, because of the sudden demand for COVID-Omicron testing, the company will close its remaining clinics. Hopefully, this will not lead to an extended shutdown. But until the issue is resolved, it’s important to remember that CityMD is not the only medical facility in the city.
