YAP services are representative of CHN’s overall mission – to provide affordable, culturally sensitive, and comprehensive community-based primary care, reproductive health, nutrition, behavioral health, and social services for New Yorkers who may otherwise have little or no access to critical health care. The mobile YAP unit is part of CHN’s Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) network, which includes 14 sites across New York City and serves over 80,000 residents per year.

On May 19th at 11am, Community Healthcare Network (CHN), which operates 14 Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) throughout New York City, will host a ribbon cutting to celebrate rebuilding its East New York Dr. Betty Shabazz Health Center. Since its opening in 1968, the Health Center has provided essential primary care to medically underserved residents in and around East New York. With the help of key financing partners, CHN celebrates a $10 million investment to rebuild this critical healthcare facility, doubling its size and capacity.

At the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak in early March, CHN began testing qualifying patients at all 12 of its community health centers located in Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan and the Bronx. At the direction of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, all community based centers in New York City suspended testing on March 20th.
