Metro Urgicare Announced Grand Opening of New Location in the White Plains Area of the Bronx, NY

One of the first providers to bring urgent care services to the Bronx, Dr. Sumir Sahgal launched Metro UrgiCare in 2015 at a time when many companies were opening urgent care centers in affluent New York City neighborhoods, but few were willing to bring these much-needed services to poor communities. Caring for some of the poorest and sickest populations in the Bronx since 1999, through Metro UrgiCare’s parent company Essen Health Care, Dr. Sahgal recognized the growing evidence of the benefits of patient access to urgent care services and knew that it was the right thing to do for his patients. In fact, demand was initially so high that one urgent care center quickly became 3 in the Bronx and 1 in Brooklyn. The White Plains facility is Metro UrgiCare’s sixth location. Future plans also include expansion into Queens.

Metro UrgiCare locations are specially designed to increase access to medical attention and to expedite the treatment of ailments that, although not life-threatening, simply cannot wait. Whether a patient is in need of a mandatory employee physical, or treatment for a minor injury or episodic event, Metro UrgiCare ensures that walk-in patients are attended to in 60 minutes or less. Research has proven that such quick quality service not only alleviates the congestion of overburdened emergency rooms, but also leads to improved health outcomes in the communities it serves.

“Urgent care facilities fill a vital niche in community health,” said Operations Director, Mark Hirschhorn. “We designed all details of our centers around our brand promise: ‘Care When you Need It’. Metro Urgicare not only treats patients that are injured or sick, but we also to provide a variety of medical services, such as physicals, screenings, and vaccinations, for patients who need care and need it immediately. Our current and future expansion plans consider locations where timely access to care may be difficult to find.” 

Founded in 2015, Metro UrgiCare is a comprehensive urgent care organization based in New York City. Utilizing cutting edge technology and a patient-centric model of care, Metro UrgiCare is dedicated to providing quick quality medical services, when patients need it most. Our patients enjoy accessible rapid service and treatment, provided by expert physicians and staff. for more information about Metro UrgiCare visit our website at or contact us at
