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.

3 men sought for armed robbery in East Elmhurst home invasion near LaGuardia Airport: NYPD

The NYPD is looking for three men who allegedly robbed an East Elmhurst man of tens of thousands of dollars during a home invasion early Monday morning.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at a townhouse located at 108-09 Ditmars Blvd. near 29th Avenue just south of LaGuardia Airport.
The victim had pulled up in front of his home just before 2 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. One of them pulled out a firearm and forced him inside the townhouse where they stole around $30,000 in cash and a safe that contained an unspecified amount of jewelry, before exiting and driving off in a silver four-door SUV, police said.
