Phelps Memorial Hospital Opens New Croton Practice
(February 19, 2013) Phelps at Croton, a new primary care and diagnostic radiology practice located in the ShopRite Plaza at 440 Riverside Avenue, is open and providing care to adult patients. The new office has been opened by Phelps Memorial Hospital Center, the full-service community hospital on Route 9 in Sleepy Hollow.
At a recent ribbon-cutting event, Mayda Davis, Phelps Practice Administrator, gave Croton Mayor Leo Wiegman a tour of the facility.
“Croton has had a very good working relationship with Phelps for a long time, especially in their support and technical assistance for our Emergency Medical Services for so many years,” said Mayor Wiegman. “Opening this medical office right here in Croton shows how deeply committed Phelps is to our community.”
Phelps Senior Vice President Daniel Blum reports that the practice, which opened in October, started out busier than anticipated and many people are taking advantage of being able to just walk in and receive care without making an appointment.. “Creating satellite primary care offices is a good way for the hospital to reach out into the communities we serve,” Blum said. “Judging from the response we have gotten, Croton residents appreciate having such convenient access to our services, which are backed up by hospital resources and facilities when needed.”
Primary Care Physicians at Phelps at Croton include Marco Zarlengo, MD, and Michael Finkelstein, MD, both internists, and Jane Connolly, FNP, a family nurse practitioner.
Specialists practicing in Croton are Eliz Agopian, MD, neurologist; and James Hellerman, MD, endocrinologist, who are available by appointment.
Phelps radiology services are also offered at the Croton site, where diagnostic X-ray and ultrasound are available.
Office hours are Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm. Appointments may be made by calling 914-269-1700. Walk-ins are welcome to see the primary care physicians and for X-ray services. Appointments are needed for ultrasound..
