NYP Launches Medicare Accountable Care Organization
As part of the Hospital's ongoing efforts to deliver the highest quality patient care as efficiently and effectively as possible, NewYork-Presbyterian and its Medical School partners, Weill Cornell and Columbia, have been approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to establish a Medicare Accountable Care Organization (ACO). A Medicare ACO is designed to more effectively coordinate care for specific populations, particularly the chronically ill. NYP's program, NewYork Quality Care, is one of 30 ACOs in the New York Metropolitan area.
Unique to NewYork-Presbyterian:
Medical journals laud our achievements. Many of our procedures are top stories and medical firsts. In 2011 and 2012 alone, our teams have performed surgeries and conducted research never before seen:
The foundations of our hospital pre-date the American Revolution. First pediatric heart transplant. First nursing school. First medical use of the laser beam. First Pap smear. The invention of the APGAR score. But we’re more than just a historical marvel.
We train tomorrow’s leaders and build tomorrow’s facilities. We’re interested not only in what you achieve now, but what you’ll achieve for the next 20 years. At our hospital, there’s always a career “next-step,” just as there’s always a new advancement for your department. Join our hospital to become more (and mean more to patients) than you ever imagined.
New Outpatient Center:
In April 2013, NYP received the largest philanthropic donation in the hospital’s history: a $100 million gift from David H. Koch. This donation will support the construction of a new ambulatory care center on York Avenue between 68th and 69th Streets. This 450,000-square-foot location will open in 2018.
Called the David H. Koch Center, this new facility will bring the full continuum of quality care to the world of ambulatory medicine. Here, we’ll provide patients with the best in personalized and integrated outpatient care. The Koch Center will take patients from diagnosis to treatment to aftercare—all in a single, patient-friendly, tech-forward environment.
