Neighborhood Health Action Centers

The NYC Health Department's Neighborhood Health Action Centers in Brownsville, East Harlem, and Tremont provide a variety of resources and programs to serve residents’ health needs.

These neighborhood assets bring together health care providers, New York City agencies, and community-based organizations and programs under one roof. The Action Centers make connecting to programs and services more efficient by providing a one-stop shop for community residents. They also provide community groups with space for community organizing and planning.

You can go to an Action Center for:

  • Primary care, mental health care and, in some cases, dental care
  • Referrals to a network of neighborhood resources
  • Health and wellness classes, workshops and activities
  • Community space for individuals and groups to work and coordinate strategies that advance neighborhood health

For non-Health Department services in the Health Action Center buildings, such as medical clinics and IDNYC, please call the program directly for specific instructions.
