We Look Forward to Seeing You!
Our healthcare workers have heroically fought on the frontlines of the COVID-19 battle, and we remain here for those who continue to come in with COVID. But we also need to return to providing care for those patients getting a knee replaced, seeking relief for a painful spine debilitation, or are considering life-preserving weight-loss surgery. We serve our community’s healthcare needs in a myriad of ways. As COVID-19 remains in the community until a vaccine is created, we know you have a multitude of questions about how TBHC will continue to deliver safe, effective and compassionate care.
Here's what you need to know about coming in for a visit to one of our ambulatory care sites:
- Ambulatory sites are now open with modifications to ensure your safety.
- As a precaution, all patients and visitors will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms at all access points to the hospital and ambulatory sites.
- Appointments are being scheduled to assure that a safe number of patients are allowed in the waiting room at any one time and that social distancing can be maintained at all times by both patients and staff. Masks are required to be worn by all patients and those accompanying patients at the visit. All staff are wearing masks, as well.
- Only one parent or caregiver is allowed with a patient, including one for an elderly or handicapped patient, and one to accompany a pregnant woman during prenatal visits.
- Patient exam rooms will be closely monitored throughout the day and disinfected as needed. The waiting areas and common areas will be cleaned and disinfected periodically during the day and each evening.
- Telemedicine visits are available for patients, as well as COVID-19 screening.

TBHC to Relocate Dialysis Service in July
The Brooklyn Hospital Center (TBHC) is moving its award-winning outpatient dialysis service from 19 Rockwell Place to the newly named Myrtle Avenue Dialysis, located at 218 Myrtle Avenue in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.
“We are proud to say that we are offering the same top-rated quality in a much improved environment,” says Wootaek Chang, MD, Division Chief of Nephrology at TBHC. For nearly a decade, the outpatient service has been recognized by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) with a 5-Star Rating, the highest possible rating from CMS.
Myrtle Avenue Dialysis, with 25 brand-new dialysis stations, is expected to open July 6, 2020. At that point, the older Rockwell office will close. For more information or to make an appointment, please call 1-833-TBHC-NOW (833-824-2669).
The Rockwell Chronic Renal Dialysis Center is dedicated to improving health outcomes for patients with end-stage renal disease. Our skilled and caring team of doctors, nurses, technicians, nutritionists and social workers work together to provide the best care possible. Rockwell has been awarded the highest ranking of five stars from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Service (CMS), one of only 13 facilities in the New York region to receive this distinction. Rockwell Center complements the dialysis service that is provided at the main TBHC hospital. TBHC is certified for six chronic dialysis stations at our hospital and 25 stations at the Rockwell Chronic Renal Dialysis Center. The site is located in Downtown Brooklyn.
Monday through Saturday, 6 am to 10 pm
We accept Medicare, Medicaid and most insurances. We provide financial assistance.
