Message from the CEO
Dear Friends and Neighbors:
Welcome to Bronx Community Health Network, Inc. (BCHN) and to our new and improved website. It is filled with information to help you stay healthy, and we welcome your comments.
We want you to think of your BCHN health center as your medical home. What do we mean by medical home? It's a health center where you are always welcome; where you will not be refused care if you don't have health insurance or the money for your visit to the doctor. At your BCHN medical home, our health care team will take care of your needs and treat you with respect.
Health center services are low cost or free based on your household income. Our outstanding team of doctors, nurses and patient care technicians and other health care professionals are ready to give you the best quality care possible. We put you, our patients, at the center of the health care team. We know that when we listen to you and get you involved in your plan of care, you are more likely to take control of your health. We want to motivate you to be your best self, to reduce your risk of illness, get fit and stay healthy!
BCHN's 17 community and school-based health centers are owned and operated by Montefiore Medical Center and the Acacia Network/Promesa Systems, Inc, two Bronx institutions that are known for providing high quality medical and substance abuse care.
BCHN is a unique organization. As a Federally Funded Qualified Health Center, more than half of the members of our Board of Directors are also patients at our health centers. They receive the same quality care and services that you do. As patients and Directors, they help us maintain high standards of care. They let us know what works and what doesn't and help to find the best ways to meet your needs.
There are many reasons to make your BCHN health center your medical home. They number one reason is YOUR HEALTH! Remember, you are at the center of everything we do.
Let's hear your other reasons.
