ABOUT THE CENTER

The transformation of health care in the Bronx depends on your help.

Transforming Health

The Health and Wellness Center at SBH is a transformational project for the south and central Bronx. Built on the campus of St. Barnabas Hospital, this integrative health and wellness center will build a culture of lifelong wellness and self-empowerment for our community that desperately needs the services it will provide.


The Center will address those social determinants – food and housing insecurities, education, social support and personal safety concerns – that can ease the burden of those chronic and preventable diseases that plague our community. The Bronx has the highest incidence of diabetes, asthma, obesity and heart disease in the city, in addition to substance abuse, non-accidental trauma and behavioral health disorders.


The innovative 50,000-square foot Health and Wellness Center at SBH, part of a mixed use development that includes more than 300 units of affordable housing, will feature:

  • A medical fitness center
  • A teaching kitchen for both community residents and healthcare providers
  • An integrative “mind and body” center
  • A rooftop farm for growing fruits and vegetables
  • Urgent Care Center
  • Women’s and Children centers
  • WIC Wellness Center

SBH Health System is committed to improving the health and wellness of our community and is dedicated to providing the highest quality care in a compassionate, comprehensive and safe environment where the patient always comes first, regardless of their ability to pay.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY.
