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 50,000 patients every year
in a broad range of services including primary services, specialty services,
dental services, and educational services. Our health center has eight
locations throughout the Bronx. 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.
