Our expertise extends far beyond the walls of our six primary sites. Many of our professionals achieve across our full range of system hospitals and satellite locations—providing convenient high-quality healthcare and services, with patient care as our common focus.
Ambulatory Care Network
The Ambulatory Care Network (ACN) of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital includes all in-hospital or stand-alone community health center practices. The ACN has 12 practices that offer primary care and over 65 specialty services. The ACN also operates an Urgicare Center, seven school-based health centers, four Women, Infants, Children (WIC) sites and a federally-funded nutrition program.
The ACN provides complete and affordable care to individuals throughout the surrounding communities and all of the boroughs of New York City. We pride ourselves in delivering high-quality, affordable, patient-friendly care to persons of all ages.
We see more than 750,000 patients a year, delivering a quality of care that rivals any private practice. Collectively, we emphasize the importance of preventive care and promote wellness through health education—through both community outreach initiatives and our clinical services.
NYP and the Community: Teen Health Conference
On June 4, 2015, NYP’s Ambulatory Care Network hosted its first annual Teen Health Conference attended by approximately 75 youth from high schools and youth organizations throughout New York City. Workshops were taught by youth representing three NYP/ACN programs: Lang Youth Medical Program, CHALK (Choosing Healthy and Active Lifestyles for Kids), and the School Based Peer Education Program. Topics ranged from physical fitness and nutrition to emotional and environmental health, and sexual and reproductive health. “The conference provided a safe and collaborative space for youth-led health discussions, and empowered teens to continue the dialogue with their peers and initiate change in their lives,” says Maria Molina, Program Manager, Lang Youth Medical Program. NewYork-Presbyterian continues to partner with the community to safeguard and improve the health of teens through the Ambulatory Care Network initiatives.

An NYP Family Affair:
Father and Daughter in Good Hands
When Khosboo Persaud and her father, Mohabir, arrived at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, they never dreamed of the level of care they’d both receive. This was Khosboo’s day. Her pediatric team had scheduled a surgery to treat her severe epilepsy, and Mohabir had asked off from work to help his daughter through the ordeal.
While nurses monitored Khosboo for seizures prior to surgery, her father sat by her bedside, as always. Sudden as a thunderclap, Mohabir felt dizzy, heaving, throbbing with chest pains. NYP employees rushed him to the E.D., where Mohabir underwent tests to verify whether or not he’d experienced a heart attack.
Anxious to return his daughter’s side, Mohabir asked the doctors to just ignore him. The results came in: Mohabir had, indeed, suffered a heart attack. They rushed him to the Cardiac Catherization Lab for an emergency procedure. While surgeons placed a stent in his blocked artery, Khosboo was lying in a different O.R., undergoing brain surgery.
During their follow-up appointments at the hospital, father and daughter tearfully embraced the clinicians who saved them, which included pediatric neurosurgeon Jeffrey Greenfield, MD, PhD, neurosurgeon Theodore Schwartz, MD, pediatric neurologist Juliann Paolicchi, MD, interventional cardiologist Geoffrey Bergman, MD, plus a host of other nurses, allied health professionals and beyond.
Khosboo and Mohabir both agreed they’d lived through “a miracle times two—swift actions that saved a daughter and a father in a single day. New York Daily News prominently covered their story:
Doctors initially told Danion’s mother that there was no way to save him. But his mother pushed on and came to NYP, where they agreed to accept the case. His surgeon, Dr. Mark Souweidane says, “It was one of the largest tumors I’ve ever seen.”
