A community of inclusive health care for all

The Nurse Practitioner Group is aware of the various social determinants of health and is committed to addressing them with our patients to reduce longstanding disparities in health care. Social determinants of health are conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age that shape health.

 

Therefore, we offer an inclusive health care system and welcoming experience for all patients. This includes those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, or asexual (LGBTQIA). We provide a transgender safe space and comprehensive LGBTQIA care services at our Washington Heights location.

 

With expertise in primary care, mental health, and specialty care services for older adults and those living with HIV, our team of board-certified nurse practitioners ensures access to the best care possible. Every visit is kept confidential to ensure the privacy of our patients.
