A reader named Michael sent in the following photo, along with this caption:
During a bicycle ride this weekend I passed by our new “emergency medical facility'”. According to the sign, Monarch Beverage, the beer wholesaler about a quarter mile away on Long Beach Rd, has longer hours than our new emergency medical center!
Michael has a point about no 24-hour ‘care’ in Long Beach yet, but his question also adds to all the confusion regarding the relationship between the actual hospital and South Nassau Urgent Care Center.
This is something that I still don’t understand: Why does this urgent care center exists and how is it separate from the hospital? Can somebody care to explain? I think it’s been explained to me before, but it goes in through one ear and out the through other.
