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.
