Morris Heights Health Center: "The Caring Place"

From counseling to intervention to benefit assistance to advocacy-and more-our Bronx health center provides a range of social services for the members of our community. We've been serving patients since 1981-that's over 30 years of consistent service to our community. Our center emphasizes free and inexpensive health care because we believe that all members of society-including the socially, economically, and medically disadvantaged-should have access to quality health care.

Morris Heights Health Center now services over 52,000 patients every year in a broad range of services including primary services, specialty services, dental services, and educational services. Our health center has seven locations throughout the Bronx, with an eight treatment and diagnostic center opening in 2017. Also, our organization operates twenty health facilities in Bronx public schools through our School Based Health Program. We also offer social services programs.

Community-Centered Care at Our Bronx Health Center

In our ongoing desire to provide the best possible care for our community, we are always thinking of new programs and opportunities to serve. Our Changing the Odds program is a positive youth developmental program designed to help children in our community learn useful life skills while learning through service. Our Women, Infants & Children (WIC) program is designed to provide supplemental foods, health care referrals, and nutrition education for low-income mothers and children up to age five.

We offer English and Spanish language health education materials in addition to our Language Access Line, which is available at all sites in order to help in translating for all other languages. Learn more about our other services, including group workshops, one-on-one counseling, health insurance enrollment counseling, and more.
