Changing Health Care in the Bronx, One Patient at a Time

The Department of Family Medicine is a dynamic department with a progressive mission. It is committed to providing excellent, comprehensive, and continuous primary care, as well as outstanding medical education and community-based health research. Central to the Department’s pursuit of its mission and values is the devotion to outreach within the community.

“The poor health statistics in the South Bronx drive us to truly want to make a difference in each and every patient, family, and neighborhood with which we connect.”

—Dr. Doug Reich, Chairman, Family Medicine

Ongoing collaboration with community-based organizations and services allow for the expansion of existing programs, as well as improved delivery of health services and research opportunities. The Claremont Healthy Village initiative exemplifies the Department’s collaborative community-based approach to improve the quality of life for individuals living within BronxCare Health System’s service area. In 2015, this partnership was recognized through grant awards from the New York Community Trust and the Samuels Foundation. The Family Medicine Community Health Worker (CHW) program is also reinforcing the department’s community and home-based health care efforts.
