NYU Langone Health also welcomed Dr. Jonathan Herman and Dr. Robert Wulwick from the newly renamed NYU Langone Women’s Health Associates—New Hyde Park, located on Long Island.
Herman and Wulwick are now conducting all deliveries at NYU Winthrop Hospital in Mineola. NYU Winthrop has a robust maternal-fetal medicine division, which includes the only fetal surgery program on Long Island, a neonatal intensive care unit that is ranked among the best in the world regarding survival of extremely premature babies, and the hospital offers pediatric surgery and other subspecialty services.
New ultrasonography equipment also has been installed at NYU Langone Women’s Health Associates—New Hyde Park to enable virtual, real-time maternal-fetal medicine consultations with specialists at NYU Winthrop.
Their practice, previously called Elite Women’s Health Care, was established more than 50 years ago. They deliver approximately 600 babies every year, and their patients travel from as far as New Jersey.
The providers offer outpatient general obstetrics and gynecology services, as well as genetic testing for patients who are at risk for Hereditary Cancer Syndromes, including Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer Syndrome and Lynch Syndrome. The practice is conveniently open weekday evenings and Sunday mornings.
In addition, the practice is complemented by fertility treatment and preservation services at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York, providing patients with access to integrated, comprehensive reproductive medicine. This coordination of care will become increasingly important in the coming months as a New York State law comes into effect January 1, 2020, that will greatly expand insurance coverage for fertility services.
