SPONSORED POST - Roosevelt Island Urgent Care Medical Facility, Just Walk In At 520 Main Street 7 Days A Week For Your Medical Needs - Adult & Child CPR Training Info Too

According to Roosevelt Island Urgent Care (RIUC):

Our Roosevelt Island facility is  located at 520 Main Street.

The medical needs of this 2 mile long historic island on the East River is a perfect landscape for our services.

RIUC is the first health care facility on the Island. Currently local residents must travel to either Manhattan or Astoria, for treatment—a trip that requires the use of a tram, subway, bus or car. Our facility in essence created a full-service medical center for a growing population of 15,000. RIUC is here to serve your needs.

These needs will increase in the near future with the addition of new multi-family developments and the new Cornell NYC Tech campus, which is under construction and due to open this year. The University is relying on our center to tend to the medical needs of the students and faculty. Roosevelt Island Urgent Care is also well positioned to provide services to the many construction workers who are on the Island during the next few years.

Other amenities include:
  • Hot and cold complimentary beverage center
  • Charging station
  • Flat screen TV in waiting room as well as every exam room
  • Childrens play area
  • And much more!

Roosevelt Island Urgent Care Community Liaison Adib Mansour adds:
The Roosevelt Island Urgent Care Center gave RIRA’s Hands-Only CPR committee a helping hand (and office use) to teach our islanders life-saving lessons.

The RI Urgent Care Center offered its offices for training the trainers in preparation for Roosevelt Island Day. The center is also working on offering its space for weekly trainings in cooperation with RIRA’s Children, Youth & Education Committee and RIRA Hands-Free CPR Committee for the youth, as well as other groups.

RIRA’s Hands-Free CPR has thus far trained 1,199 islanders, including 77 on the morning of the last Roosevelt Island Day with the help of the RI Urgent Care Center’s Monica Vega.

Late last year, the Care Center’s Brand Manager Yaakov Landau presented the Hands-Free CPR Committee with an infant CPR doll when he found out it did not have one.

 “I thought it was a crucial addition to the program in order to cover all residents on the island”. He explains that Hands-Only CPR is CPR “without mouth-to-mouth breaths and is recommended for use by people who see a teen or adult suddenly collapse in an “out-of-hospital” setting such as at home, at work or in a park”.

The Urgent Care Center designed and printed a brochure with Infants and Adults Hands Free CPR instruction which were distributed during Roosevelt Island Day (and is available here).

In the meantime, The Roosevelt Island Urgent Care (Kāmin Health Urgent Care Center on Roosevelt Island) is looking to hire a full time X-Ray Technician. For more information, or to submit a resumé, please email:
