MHHC offers COVID-19 testing in River Park Towers:
Bronx, NY - Morris Heights Health Center (MHHC) hosted a press conference on Friday, July 31st, 2020 to unveil the newest healthcare facility at River Park Towers in
The Bronx. The healthcare facility now provides COVID-19 testing and primary
care services to riverpark tenants and nearby residents.
The 2020 coronavirus pandemic struck hard in working-class neighborhoods
in the Bronx and it especially affected dense low-income housing. After
a recent article published in The New York Times, Morris Heights Health
Center and Councilmember Vanessa Gibson worked together to bring much
needed services to the RiverPark community.
“Today, we bring our home to YOUR home. We want to make it easy for
you to access healthcare” says Mari Millet, President & CEO
of Morris Heights Health Center. “But this challenge with COVID-19,
allows us to step up and ensure each and every one of us are safe.”
The facility will be open Monday – Friday from 9:00am – 4:00pm
offering COVID-19 testing and primary care for
all ages. No appointments are necessary as walk-ins are accepted. Outreach
events will also be scheduled within the next few weeks to provide health
insurance enrollment, facemask/hand sanitizer giveaways and resources
with other agencies using CDC guidelines with social distancing and facemask.
The facility is scheduled to be at RiverPark Towers all through-out October
with the opportunity to expand in services.
Morris Heights Health Center (MHHC) is a not-for-profit federally qualified
health center serving more than 60,000 residents annually in the Bronx
Community. MHHC provides a wide range of primary, specialty, dental, mental
health, educational and social services at fourteen convenient locations.
