The Family Health Centers at NYU Langone provides high-quality, affordable outpatient primary healthcare and support services. As one of the largest Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) networks in the nation, and a designated Level 3 Medical Home, the health centers include:
- Nine primary care sites
- Thirty-seven school-based health centers and dental clinics
- Four day care centers
- The nation’s largest dental residency program
- New York State’s largest behavioral health program
- Twelve community medicine sites providing care to disenfranchised New Yorkers, comprehensive HIV services, and chemical dependency programs
- A family support center that offers educational, vocational, and other social support programs
The Family Health Centers is a Level 3 Medical Home, where unlike other health care facilities, each patient is provided with a cohesive team of doctors that proactively work together with the best interest of each patient in mind. A medical home also enables patients to form a relationship with their physicians and specialists, fostering better communication and follow-up care.
So what is it really like to work at NYU Langone? Let our people tell you. They know firsthand what makes this a world-class workplace.
“I started as an intern at NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn seven years ago and now work in outpatient rehab, treating patients from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. I’ve helped develop the Communication Group at NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn so that patients with communication difficulties can interact with and receive support from each other. I am very passionate about seeing patients with neurogenic communication disorders and dysphagia achieve their goals after brain injury or stroke. There’s no better feeling than having a patient leave the room smiling with the sense that they’ve accomplished something!”

“Many of our patients are new immigrants who speak very little English. I am honored to treat this population. Not only because it is both challenging and rewarding, but because I was once new to the country as an immigrant from Hong Kong at the age of 16. Coming to work every day is somewhat like going on a medical mission. It touches my heart how NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn accommodates Brooklyn’s diverse community. We work as a team with one ultimate goal to bring the best service to our patients.”
