A brand-new walk-in medical center will soon be opening up in Howard Beach.

On Crossbay Boulevard and 165th Avenue, ProHEALTH, one of the largest integrated physician groups in New York City, is starting construction on an urgent care center. It will be the second urgent care center on the boulevard along with Medysis a half mile to the north.

The center will serve walk-in patients, both children and adults, according to the sign that was hung up on the building. It will also offer gastroenterology services, expanding the medical practice of Dr. Frank Gerardi, whose current office is at 156th Avenue and Crossbay Boulevard.

The exact date of when the center will open is unclear; ProHEALTH did not respond to a phone call on the matter.
