Morris Heights Health Center: The Caring Place

WE DON'T TURN ANYONE AWAY! Morris Heights Health Center provides care to patients whether or not they are able to pay.

At our health center, everything is focused on our patients. They come first! No matter what. That's why we're known as "The Caring Place"-a facility where the patient is at the center of everything we do. That's a standard of care you can expect, and a promise you can have confidence in seeing fulfilled.

More Than 35 Years of Service in New York

With the Morris Heights Neighborhood Improvement Association (MHNIA) as its guide, and Verona Greenland at the helm, Morris Heights Health Center (MHHC) opened its doors in March 1981.

Supported by a staff of 10, the Center began in earnest to meet the health and social needs of community residents. Now, over three decades later and with a staff of over 570, MHHC has evolved into a multi-site organization offering a broad compendium of programs and services including primary and specialty care services, support for health insurance enrollment, coordinated case management, behavioral health, mobile health and outreach services, women’s health, a specialized men’s clinic, pediatrics, young adult and adolescent health care, senior housing, and school-based health services.

Today, Morris Heights Health Center is a world-class model for health care delivery and an oasis of hope. Aptly called “The Caring Place: where the patient is at the center of everything we do”, Morris Heights Health Center is a safe haven, treating the community with dignity, respect and delivering the highest quality of care and support.

MHHC has set the bar high for patient care. We have a record of distinction, serving as a major health care provider for more than 35 years. Morris Heights Health Center is proud to serve over 52,000 patients annually. We continue to respond to our mission to be the vanguard for quality, affordable and accessible healthcare for all.
