TARRYTOWN, N.Y. -- ENT and Allergy Associates LLP and Montefiore Medical Center announced an affiliation to help improve access to comprehensive care for pediatric patients impacted by diseases and disorders of the ears, nose, throat, head and neck.
The agreement will allow seamless transitions of medical information and advanced care for patients throughout their continuum of care. “By working closely with leading community providers like ENT and Allergy Associates, we can greatly improve access to superior services that are convenient for the thousands of young people impacted by head, neck and ENT disorders,” said Dr. Marvin Fried, university chairman, department of otorhinolaryngology, head and neck surgery, Montefiore Medical Center and Einstein.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to broaden the range of interventions that address our patients’ needs. This allows Montefiore to provide local residents with the best care possible.” Through the new affiliation, pediatric patients in the Bronx and Hudson Valley will benefit from newly created protocols that begin with local access to health screenings at ENTA. Patients who are found to need hospital care will be quickly and seamlessly transferred to Montefiore within 24-48 hours. After the hospital stay, coordinated care teams will continue treatments and additional screenings as needed. “Montefiore is one of the most well-known and highly regarded medical centers in the tristate area,” said Dr. Robert Green, president of ENT and Allergy Associates. “Our mission at ENTA focuses on providing the finest care possible to our patients. Combining our assets with those of Montefiore’s will certainly yield greater pediatric medical excellence in the Bronx and the Hudson Valley.”
The Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery for children offers treatment for all ear, nose and throat conditions. The division collaborates with pediatric subspecialists to treat tumors and masses in the head and neck region, and perform airway surgery and cochlear implantation.
