Metropolitan Patients & Visitors

Seeking medical treatment can be an overwhelming experience. At NYC Health + Hospitals/Metropolitan, we provide culturally-sensitive care to patients from all five New York City boroughs in a welcoming and hospitable setting, emphasizing primary care medicine and utilizing the latest advances in medical science. Close patient supervision by a specially trained multidisciplinary team of health professionals helps ensure that patients receive the best, most effective care possible.

Patient-Centered Medical Home

Our dedicated team provides coordinated, evidence-based care and tools to manage your health. We assure that all patients meet their individual health needs and receive timely comprehensive care through a medical care team effort. We are proud to have dedicated doctors, nurses, other healthcare professionals, and support staff who will help you get better and stay well. You can call us if you have any questions about your care plan, blood work, follow-up tests, and forms. And we can connect you with a provider by phone at any time, day or night.

Our goal is to help you live the healthiest life possible and to build healthy neighborhoods.

Specialty and Hospital Care

Because we are part of the largest public health care system in the country, we can provide easy referrals to a vast network of hospitals, home care services, nursing homes and specialty care providers across the city.
