BronxCare Health System

Infectious Diseases

The Division of Infectious Diseases, under the direction of Dr. Cosmina Zeana, is a leader in the treatment and prevention of infectious diseases, including COVID-19, Zika, HIV/AIDS, West Nile Virus, drug resistant bacteria, influenza, tuberculosis, Ebola, and Legionnaires’ disease. The specialized inpatient program and nationally recognized Center for Comprehensive Care are providing primary treatment, educational services, and continuing research. Availability of National Institute of Health-funded clinical trials for patients and numerous other grant awards are a tribute to the efforts of Dr. Zeana and her team, as well as Dr. Richard Cindrich, the former Chief. The division is also recipient of a new CDC grant for HIV care.

A Center for Travel Medicine, under the direction of Dr. Paul Kelly, is also preparing patients and their families for safe and healthy international trips. It provides immunizations, preventive treatments, special medications, and consultation for all types of infectious diseases.
