CROTON-ON-HUDSON, NY -- Croton residents no longer need to head to Sleepy Hollow to get primary care from Phelps Memorial Hospital Center.
Phelps at Croton, a new primary care and diagnostic radiology practice, recently opened up at the ShopRite Plaza, 440 Riverside Ave. It will provide care to adult patients, according to representatives of the hospital. 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 Wiegman in a press release. "Opening this medical office right here in Croton shows how deeply committed Phelps is to our community."
Phelps Senior Vice President Daniel Blum said the practice, which opened in October, started out busier than he anticipated.
"Creating satellite primary care offices is a good way for the hospital to reach out into the communities we serve," Blum said in the release. "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."
Phelps radiology services also are offered at the Croton site, where diagnostic X-ray and ultrasound are available, according to the release.
Office hours at the new location are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. Those looking to make appointments are asked to call 914-269-1700. Walk-ins are welcome for primary care and for X-ray services but appointments are needed for ultrasound, according to the release.
