New York City’s three WTC Centers of Excellence, all part of the WTC Health Program established by the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, provide specialized testing and treatment for physical and mental health conditions:
The WTC Centers of Excellence offer:
- Treatment and medication for WTC-related illnesses with no out-of-pocket costs to patients
- Treatment by health professionals specializing in 9/11-related conditions
- Assistance with applying for 9/11-related benefits, such as Workers' Compensation
Local residents, area workers and people passing by the area of the WTC, who were exposed to WTC dust or fumes and are experiencing symptoms related to this exposure. This includes:
- Adult and child residents of lower Manhattan and some areas of Brooklyn
- Students attending schools and colleges in lower Manhattan in 2001 and 2002
- City employees, and
- Volunteers and people involved in debris removal and clean-up.
Patients are seen regardless of insurance status.
Note: The WTC Environmental Health Center is not a screening program. The main purpose is to monitor and treat people who already have 9/11-related health problems.
