This grand opening has been absolutely amazing! We’re so excited to see the outcome and input of everyone that came in today. The studio, upstairs, it’s been absolutely incredible!

How do you think everything that they’re doing is going to help the community?

Interviewer

So, having this healthcare hub in the Bronx is going to really help an underserved area, the U@Perks upstairs are going to help different case managers have that relaxation time they really need. And, overall, Emerest Connect touches patients all over in the four different boroughs. So, it’s pretty incredible! It’s going to help a lot of different people.

And also it’s going to help with their mental health. What do you think about that?

Interviewer

Their mental health is so important! That’s why we have at Emerest Connect the psych program, the social work program which really patients find very comforting. A lot of them just want to talk to someone. So, mental health is something luckily in now that we’re talking about and it’s great to see.
