William F. Ryan Community Health Network – Ryan / Frederick Douglass Community Health Center
NYCEDC awarded William F. Ryan Community Health Network with start-up support funding to help open its new site in Central Harlem.
The Ryan Network has been serving New Yorkers for almost fifty years, and the Ryan / Frederick Douglass Community Health Center marks its 18th service location. The Ryan Network has converted a former medical group practice into a non-profit Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), ensuring that all patients will be able to receive care, regardless of their ability to pay. This health center is located across the street from NYCHA’s St. Nicholas Public Housing complex, which is home to almost 3,500 residents.
