We are thrilled to recognize the 20th anniversary of our Ryan Chelsea-Clinton community health center (RCC). Opening to the community in 2001, planning for RCC began in 1992 as a result of a meeting called by Assemblyman Richard Gottfried to discuss the unmet primary care needs of the Hell's Kitchen and Chelsea communities. Since that time, the 20,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility has grown to serve over 10,000 patients annually, over half of whom are living at or below 200% of the federal poverty level.

Ryan Chelsea-Clinton, located at 645 Tenth Avenue between 45th and 46th Streets, provides primary care and preventive services to both insured and uninsured adults and children. RCC offers a full range of high quality, affordable, multilingual/ multicultural, coordinated health care, prevention, and support services that are responsive to the health care needs of diverse populations regardless of ability to pay. In addition to primary care, the Center offers on-site provision of specialty and ancillary services such as Behavioral Health, Dentistry, Dermatology, Gastroenterology, HIV Services, Ophthalmology/Optometry, Podiatry, and Radiology.

Executive Director, Dan Pichinson says, "we are proud to have provided much needed high-quality health services for the community these past 20 years and look forward to continuing to do so for another 20 years.”
