Will I continue to see my own doctor in the same location?

Yes, each practice will continue to operate as before, and you will continue to see your doctor, nurse practitioner and physician assistant and staff in the same location.

Why was MHAWNY formed?

The complexity of running a medical practice today has compelled the Pediatricians to work with other likeminded professions to develop efficient and uniform business practices. This will better allow all the doctors to continue to offer high quality wellness and medical care to their patients and pool their resources to expand their services in the future. You are invited to review our Mission Statement.

What will change with MHAWNY?

To take advantage of shared support services, most of the changes will happen behind the scenes of day-to-day practice.

The new Financial Policy of MHAWNY is shown also.
