    The center is located at 1436 Union Tpke. in the Lake Success Shopping Center, just one mile away from more than a dozen Northwell Health emergency and specialty services, including Cohen Children’s Medical Center and Long Island Jewish Medical Center. The new Lake Success center is Northwell Health-GoHealth’s 60th location in New York, and the third with Cohen Children’s-credentialed pediatricians onsite to provide expanded care for babies and children.

    “We are proud to build on Northwell Health’s presence in the region and provide more accessible, on-demand healthcare options outside of the emergency department for the Lake Success community. Quick and easy access to non-emergent care options is essential for individuals, families and our community,” said Vivek Taparia, regional president of Northwell Health-GoHealth. “Our new center provides unmatched convenience for children and adults who require quick care for minor injuries or illnesses.”

    The new Lake Success center treats babies as young as 1 week old, children, teens and adults for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries. With onsite labs and X-rays, it provides the region with a new convenient and more affordable option for expert care outside of higher-cost settings like the emergency department. Located near a Northwell Health medical hub, the center is one mile away from Northwell Health’s:
    • Cohen Children’s Medical Center
    • Long Island Jewish Medical Center
    • Katz Women’s Hospital
    • Zucker Hillside Hospital
    • Center for Advanced Medicine
    • Northwell Health Cancer Institute
    • Northwell Health Sandra Atlas Bass Otolaryngology Center
    • The Smith Institute for Urology

    The Lake Success center was designed with kids in mind. Its board-certified pediatricians are credentialed through Cohen Children’s Medical Center. They treat children as young as one week old.

    The wallpaper and color palettes feature harmonious patterns from nature that are visually pleasing and soothing. The center’s innovative, award-winning urgent care design also features wood accents, curved surfaces and customer-friendly technology that create a uniquely comfortable patient experience for young and old.

    “As the saying goes, children are not just little adults, they come with their own set of medical issues and ways of interacting with them,” said Dr. Lynda Gerberg, lead pediatrician, Cohen Children’s Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care. “Oftentimes when working parents come home to a sick or injured child, they are so grateful that they’re able to get care for their little ones from a Cohen Children’s pediatrician without going to the emergency room, especially afterhours.”

    The center is open 365 days a year, providing same-day, evening, weekend, and holiday care. Pediatricians are available 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and general urgent care providers are available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week. An additional center is scheduled to open in Yaphank in early 2024.

    Patients seeking care can be seen quickly and easily by walking into any of Northwell Health-GoHealth’s 60 centers or by going online to save a spot and pre-register. For details about all Northwell Health-GoHealth locations, visit
