Demand for Outpatient Facilities on the Rise

A message from the president of Greenwich Hospital 

Long Ridge Medical Center in Stamford represents the face of healthcare today.

People visiting our outpatient facility can see a primary care physician or a Yale Medicine specialist, undergo diagnostic imaging tests, receive infusions and physical therapy, or have their blood drawn – all without stepping foot in a hospital. Plus, patients who require additional care or surgery have access to Greenwich Hospital and our extraordinary level of service excellence.

As part of Yale New Haven Health, Long Ridge illustrates the value of people choosing hospitals and outpatient facilities associated with a world-class healthcare system. Long Ridge brings the clinical expertise of Greenwich Hospital, Yale Medicine’s Center for Musculoskeletal Care and Yale New Haven Health’s Northeast Medical Group of primary care physicians under one roof to improve convenience, access and coordination of care for our patients. 

The Long Ridge Road location also reflects the ongoing integration of medical services from hospitals to smaller facilities closer to home and work places. Our patients tell us they want high-quality care that’s convenient and consolidates a spectrum of medical and wellness services in one spot.

Looking forward, Greenwich Hospital will be extending its outpatient footprint. In May, we opened a multispecialty outpatient facility at 90 South Ridge St. in Rye Brook that includes pediatric specialists, primary care physicians, diagnostic imaging and laboratory services. In September, we will open another comprehensive outpatient facility at 500 West Putnam Ave. in Greenwich that includes cardiology, pulmonology and physical therapy services.

We are also looking to expand services at Long Ridge Medical Center in response to feedback from area residents. Patients rank their Long Ridge experience in the top one percent on satisfaction surveys. e most common comment: “I wish I had known about this facility sooner!”
