NYCEDC awarded Damian Family Care Centers with start-up support funding to help open its new site in the South Bronx.
Damian Family Care Centers converted an existing diagnostic and treatment center into a non-profit Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), and anticipates doubling the average number of patient visits per year. As an FQHC, the Third Avenue Family Health Center treats all patients, regardless of their ability to pay. The new 32,000-square-foot health center is conveniently located near two schools and three NYCHA public housing developments.
This site offers adult and pediatric primary care, dental care, behavioral health care, and specialty services, as well as supportive services including insurance outreach and enrollment and immunization drives. There is also an on-site pharmacy which will provide eligible patients with access to discounted medications through the 340b Drug Pricing Program. It can serve roughly ten thousand patients at full capacity.
