Ambulatory Care Network

The NewYork-Presbyterian Ambulatory Care Network provides primary care to children and families in communities throughout Manhattan. Our goal is to improve the health and quality of life for residents in New York City's underserved communities by providing high-quality, affordable, patient-friendly care, with an emphasis on preventive health care and wellness. Patients and their families have ready access to NewYork-Presbyterian's children's hospitals, should our resources be needed.

In addition to primary care services, the Ambulatory Care Network includes many specialty programs for children and adolescents, including:

  • Community Health and Education (CCHE), a community and school-based health center program providing comprehensive medical, mental health, and health education services for medically underserved adolescents and adults.
  • CHALK (Choosing Healthy & Active Lifestyles for Kids), whose goals are to reduce the prevalence of childhood obesity in northern Manhattan and to promote a healthy lifestyle.
  • The Family PEACE (Promoting Education, Advocacy, Collaboration and Empowerment) Program, dedicated to improving the safety and well-being of mothers and children who have been exposed to violence in their homes.
  • The Lang Youth Medical Program, a six-year science enrichment, mentoring, internship, and college preparatory program for talented ethnic minority youth who aspire to become future scientists and healthcare professionals.
  • Health for Life, a comprehensive weight management program for overweight pre-adolescents and adolescents.
  • Project STAY (Services to Assist Youth), which provides HIV counseling and testing and comprehensive services to high-risk medically underserved adolescents and young adults at risk for or living with HIV.
  • Reach Out and Read, a hospital-based program that links reading aloud with giving books to children aged six months to five years during their primary healthcare visits.
  • Turn 2 Us, a collaboration between Public Schools 128M and 4M, Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital, and Derek Jeter's Turn 2 Foundation to encourage healthy lifestyle behaviors among elementary school students.
  • Washington Heights-Inwood Network (WIN) for Health, designed to strengthen the existing community-wide network of care and to improve the health of children with asthma and adults with type 2 diabetes.
