The Metropolitan Hospital Family Health Center, known as La Clínica del Barrio, offers access to the same high quality medical services as Metropolitan in a neighborhood setting. Founded in 1997, La Clínica’s bilingual staff makes sure that patients receive high-quality care in a welcoming and modern environment.
La Clínica offers primary care for the whole family, including prenatal care, pediatrics, and general medicine. Services include vaccinations, HIV testing, family planning, blood pressure and cholesterol screening, and care for chronic conditions such as asthma and diabetes. Referrals are made as needed to specialists based at nearby Metropolitan Hospital Center. Staff at La Clínica can provide information on accepted insurance plans and assistance in applying for public healthcare plans such as Medicaid. Patients who do not qualify for public health insurance may be eligible for HHC Options, our charity care program. HHC Options makes healthcare services affordable to New Yorkers with limited or no insurance coverage.
