Medical Group for Members of Affordable New York City Health Plan Designed to Stem Tide of Rising Costs (Brooklyn, NY) As health care costs skyrocket for small businesses in New York City, Atlantis Health Plan - the most affordable health plan in New York's five boroughs - is making a significant contribution to the health of Brooklyn and its Atlantis members by opening a new Medical Group on Thursday, November 17th (2005).

The opening will be marked by a 2 p.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz; Atlantis Executive Vice President John Muney, MD; Atlantis CEO Sury Anand, MD; Atlantis Chief Operating Officer Tom Dwyer, and Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce President Kenneth Adams.

The new medical office, located at 408 77th Street (at 4th Avenue) in Bay Ridge, is a center for blood work, immunizations, sonograms, EKGs and others tests, and also provides primary care for Atlantis Health Plan members. Requiring no co-pays, the Atlantis Medical Group is located near public transportation (R train and B4 bus) and is easily reached by car.

Atlantis, offering the lowest commercial rates in New York City to businesses and sole proprietorships, sells exclusively in the five boroughs. It has made significant inroads in Brooklyn. "Small businesses are the heart and soul of Brooklyn's economy, and Atlantis Health Plan has been a vital partner in ensuring their physical - and financial - health," said Borough President Markowitz. "With so many of its clients in Brooklyn, it makes perfect sense that Atlantis would open its first Medical Group here. If you can make it here in Brooklyn, you can make it anywhere!"

Atlantis' CEO Sury Anand said that the company will open additional Medical Group offices in Manhattan and Queens early in 2006.

"Atlantis is an excellent corporate citizen," said Chamber of Commerce President Adams. "It is already the Official Health Plan of the Brooklyn Cyclones, as well as other Brooklyn businesses like Stroffolino Realty and Top Notch Pest Control. The company has been proudly promoting these associations in a city- and Brooklyn-wide marketing and advertising campaign."

Atlantis Health Plan was founded in 2000 by a group of doctors including Chairman and CEO Dr. Sury Anand, a New York City-based physician who has long sought effective solutions to spiraling health care costs for businesses and their employees.

"The Health Plan's central goal is to advance the cost-effective delivery of high quality health care in the City, harnessing the skill, experience and knowledge of professionals at every step of the health care management and delivery process," said Dr. Anand. "We seek to recreate the health care partnership that once existed between the patient and the professional."

By having Atlantis schedule an appointment at one of the Medical Group offices, the patients saves on the co-pay for the lab work and the co-pay for the x-rays. In addition, both procedures are done at the same location, with just one appointment.
