Our Sponsors

Our sponsors are critical to the continued success and growth of the NYGFL, and we thank them for their ongoing support. Please show them love whenever you can!

The NYGFL is proud to partner with Northwell Health Orthopaedic Institute. Northwell is the largest healthcare system in New York and is standing ready to help NYGFL players with any sports injury management and/or emergency medicine needs.

Many of us have experienced some type of on-the-field injury while playing flag football, and it can be scary to be unsure what exactly to do next: Is CityMD even open this late? Do I need to go to the emergency room? If yes, where is the closest one? As a result, some players end up delaying needed medical attention in hopes that it gets better the following day.

The NYGFL’s partnership with Northwell Health is three-fold:

  1. Sports Medicine: Northwell’s Sports Medicine Program offers a variety of conservative treatments and specialty programs to enhance performance, expedite recovery, and get you back to the field. Their team includes Sports Medicine Physicians, including NYGFL’s own Dr. Amy West.
  2. Emergency Room: For the most serious of injuries, Northwell’s 24-hour emergency room is located in the heart of the West Village, providing an option close to both Pier 40 and Chelsea Waterside Park, where we play many of our games.
  3. Local Physicians: Northwell recognizes the importance of having access to gay-friendly, fear-free medical care for the LGBTQ+ community. This winter, Northwell plans to open an LGBTQ+ healthcare center in the West Village, which will include primary care, HIV-care/prevention, cardiology, transgender care center, and other specialties.

For specific sports medicine options beyond injury prevention needs, there are three ways to easily schedule an appointment
