Dr. Lisa Eng
The Birthing Center of NY, a new corporation owned and operated by MSSNY member Dr. Lisa Eng, will create a state-of-the-art center with four home-like birthing rooms. The Public Health and Health Planning Council recently approved the freestanding birthing center. It’s located in a 3,500 square foot space near NYU Lutheran in Southwest Brooklyn.
“One percent of New York’s State’s births occur in the home and consequently it is our hope to offer women more choices in childbirth,” said Dr. Eng. “The Center will be open to all midwives, obstetricians, and family practitioners who wish to credential and are willing to abide by the selection criteria for delivering at the Center.”
A graduate of Queens College, Dr. Eng received her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from New York College of Osteopathic Medicine in Old Westbury. She completed her residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn. She has been in private practice since 1995, as owner of New Life Medical Esthetics & Wellness in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Dr. Eng, an obstetrician and gynecologist, has been a member of MSSNY since 1994. The doctor is also a member of the Committee to Eliminate Healthcare Disparities. She has also been the Chair of Section 2, District II of ACOG, and was part of Listening to Mothers II work group. She is past President of the Medical Society of Kings.
