Weill Cornell Medicine opened a new medical practice in Long Island City in a partnership with New York-Presbyterian Monday.

The practice, located on the ground floor of The JACX at 28-25 Jackson Ave., aims to provide Queens residents with greater access to physicians within the Manhattan-based institution.

The facility replaces Weill Cornell’s original Long Island City location at 5-31 50th Ave. — where only one pediatrician and one primary care physician saw patients.

The medical institution began construction on the new 50,000-square-foot facility about two years ago in an effort to expand services and the number of doctors. Weill Cornell aimed to create a “one-stop shop” for the community through its new, larger practice.

The new facility has seven physicians on hand offering patient care in primary/family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics and obstetrics and gynecology. A team of eight orthopedic surgeons from New York-Presbyterian Medical Group Queens will also work out of the new location.

Weill Cornell plans to place additional specialists at the Jackson Avenue practice based on community needs. For instance, radiologists will join the Long Island City team in early 2022 to offer services like X-rays, MRIs and mammograms.
