Open until midnight, the center is Northwell Health-GoHealth’s 18th center in Suffolk County.

Extended hours to provide late-night care

The new Yaphank center is the 11th Northwell Health-GoHealth center to provide extended hours from 8 a.m. till midnight, seven days a week. Historically, Suffolk County families have had limited options for late-night care and faced the decision of whether to wait or go to the emergency room.

Northwell Health-GoHealth centers are a more affordable option for safe and efficient care outside of higher-cost settings like the emergency department for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries. They also provide a direct connection to Northwell Health’s robust network of care, which regularly earns national recognition for excellence in quality and safety, research, and innovation.

The complete list of centers that are open until midnight now include:

·         Yaphank, 527 Blvd E (Long Island)

·         Bay Shore, 603 E Main St (Long Island)

·         Elwood, 1912 Jericho Turnpike (Long Island)

·         Levittown, 3631 Hempstead Turnpike (Long Island)

·         Mineola, 50 E Jericho Turnpike (Long Island)

“By providing late-night hours, we are increasing access to care, when and where our patients need it most,” said Taparia. “In many instances, fevers, coughs, sore throats, and minor injuries that require X-rays, sutures or other medical services don’t wait for a convenient time to occur. By being open until midnight, we’re helping families avoid the emergency room or waiting until the next day for medical attention.”
