NYCEDC awarded Housing Works Community Healthcare with start-up support funding to help renovate and expand its Keith D. Cylar Community Health Center in the East Village.
Housing Works Community Healthcare has unique experience serving homeless and formerly homeless individuals with substance use and behavioral health challenges. This expansion project builds upon Housing Works Community Healthcare’s vision for patient-centered care by implementing a new Integrated Outpatient Services (IOS) model at the Keith D. Cylar Community Health Center. This transformative model integrates primary care, behavioral health care, and substance abuse treatment at a single site.
In addition to offering clinical services, the site also provides supportive housing for formerly homeless persons, adult day health care services, case management services, and an on-site pharmacy which will provide eligible patients with access to discounted medications through the 340b Drug Pricing Program. It can serve 4,600 patients at full capacity.
