COMING SOON - New York City Health + Hospitals will build a $28.3 million diagnostic and treatment center on the northern end of Staten Island, an effort to increase primary care access and reduce emergency room wait times at Richmond University Medical Center. The capital funds were approved during the board of directors' monthly meeting Thursday afternoon. The clinic, expected to be open in September 2017, will be able to see roughly 50,000 patients each year, though it isn't clear if the additional capacity will be enough to mollify local residents who have complained for years that there is a lack of health care access in the only borough without a public hospital. But Ram Raju, president of Health + Hospitals, believes many of the people using the emergency rooms at Staten Island's two hospitals aren't having a true emergency and that they could be better served in a clinic.
