ENT and Allergy Associates Expands its Commitment to the Patients of Yonkers
Signs Letter of Intent to Construct State-of-the-Art Office in the
Historic Boyce Thompson Institute Building, to be Completed by September 2018
Tarrytown, NY – March 20, 2018: ENT and Allergy Associates (ENTA) has been serving the ear, nose, throat, allergy and audiology needs of the residents of Yonkers, NY for over 20 years. In that time, the population of that southern Westchester community and its surrounding neighborhoods has grown substantially, so ENTA’s clinical offerings needed to do the same. And now, they have.
Today ENTA proudly announced it has signed a letter of intent to relocate its current Yonkers office to a state-of-the-art medical facility in the historic Boyce Thompson Institute building, located at 1086 N. Broadway, Yonkers.
That office is expected to be open by September 1, 2018 and will offer patients the entirety of its current roster of outstanding board certified specialists In the interim, ENTA’s Yonkers otolaryngologists, including Jeffrey N. Cousin, M.D., Derek Soohoo, M.D., F.A.C.S., Michael B. Tom, M.D., F.A.C.S. and Joshua Weissman, M.D., allergist Krzysztof M. Nowak, M.D., and audiologists Kristina Meyer, Au.D, Mary O'Sullivan, Au.D, F-AAA and Barbara Rooney Tartaglia, Au.D., F-AAA will continue to see adult and pediatric patients at their present location (984 N. Broadway), which is situated just down the street from the new site.
ENTA’s new and expanded office significantly increases the overall footprint from 6000 sq ft to over 8000 and will allow the Practice to hire an additional otolaryngologist. It will offer more exam rooms, a dedicated procedure room, expanded audiology and expanded allergy facilities, as well as all the latest patient-centered services and conveniences that ENTA is known for, including the newest technology, leading edge procedures, pre-visit check in, online appointment booking and much more. The office will consist of 10 ENT exam rooms, two allergy exam rooms, an allergy testing room and an injection room, two audio booths, a hearing aid dispensing room, a more spacious reception area and ample free parking. The building itself will also house Fortina's Restaurant, Starbucks and other dining and retails choices.
The historically important Boyce Thompson building was originally constructed in the early 20th century to house the renowned Institute for Plant Research, a leading organization in agrarian research and development. It has now been completely and lovingly restored, and prominently features a permanent exhibition on the history and importance of the former agricultural research center.
“Our decision to return this notable building to its former stature and glory was, to us, the perfect fit for a medical practice with the sterling reputation of ENTA”, noted Joseph Simone, President of Simone Healthcare Development, the building’s owner. “They are the best at what they do, and we are delighted to have them on board.”
Robert Green, M.D., President of ENTA, commented “We wanted to ensure that our expanded presence in Yonkers not only offered our deserving patients all the clinical assets they needed, but was also conveniently located nearby our current office. In selecting the Boyce Thompson building, we believe we have achieved the best of all worlds.”
“Being able to continue to serve the patients of Yonkers, while providing them with added space and convenience, was our top priority”, stated ENTA Yonkers partner Jeffrey N. Cousin, M.D. “And we believe this move accomplishes exactly that” added fellow partner Michael B. Tom, M.D. " We are continuing our commitment to serve this community as we have since 1996. Our team could not be more delighted.”
Robert Glazer, ENTA’s CEO, summed it up as follows: “At ENTA our mission has always been to offer all our patients everything they need…from the highest quality medical care to maximum ease and convenience in accessing it. This beautiful and expanded space in Yonkers-both historic and ultra modern-was precisely what we were looking for as we see continued growth in the Yonkers /river town populations. I am certain it represents the long term solution we needed, and our patients deserve.”
