Maimonides Opens Sheepshead Bay Rehab Center

Maimonides Medical Center is putting the final touches on its newly-opened Sheepshead Bay Rehabilitation Center, but they’ve been admitting patients for a little over a month.

It’s not the first time Maimonides has had control of the 3121 Ocean Avenue building. Working in reverse chronological order, the building was occupied by Coney Island Hospital’s Sheepshead Bay Primary Care Center. Before that it was Maimonides, which originally converted the structure. And going back to the days of Sheepshead lore, there was our beloved Beefsteak Charlie’s (sigh… R.I.P., friend).

Coney Island Hospital’s Sheepshead Bay Primary Care Center closed last June following city budget cuts in healthcare spending.

The new facility houses a handful of outpatient services including urology and a woman’s care center. New signage and a paint job are on the way.
