The Grio- Bedford Stuyvesant Family Health Center opens its doors to bring enhanced health care to central Brooklyn
Friday, April 6, 2012
This week, the Bedford Stuyvesant Family Health Center (BSFHC) opened its new location in the heart of Brooklyn, located at 1456 Fulton Street in New York City. The sparkling new primary care facility was christened across the thoroughfare from its previous storefront office space, which had housed the community institution for 22 years. BSFHC's new home took six years to develop, but the wide building encompassing multiple floors is a testament to the virtue of patience. The large windows and expansive spaces of the facility are so airy and pleasant, the ultramodern BSFHC doesn't seem like a clinic. More of an oasis, the updated building will house a variety of care units, ranging from obstetrics to dentistry, bringing an enhanced level of medical attention to its Bedford Stuyvesant community. The Bedford Stuyvesant Family Health Center is a free-standing, non-profit primary care organization that has served Brooklyn for over 30 years. Insurance is not required to receive care, which is provided at affordable rates. The brain child of the Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation, America's first community development body, the new health care facility will serve 20,000 residents.
