La casita de la salud
Westchester County Clinic

ChoolfaianSpanish for The Little House of Health, La casita de la salud is an inner-city health clinic run by New York Medical College (NYMC) medical students. The goal of the clinic is to improve health outcomes by providing quality culturally competent care regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, nationality or ability to pay. The clinic emphasizes preventative medicine through patient-centered care and education, and strives to be a model of efficiency and cost-effectiveness in the achievement of the aforementioned goals

After many years of success in East Harlem, NY, the medical students of La casita de la salud are planning to replicate this life changing program in Westchester County, on the New York Medical College campus in Valhalla, NY. The clinic was originally scheduled to open in April 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic the project was delayed. However, great strides have been made since and we are now officially ready to open the clinic doors in April 2021. In order to do this, the students need to raise $10,000.

Help NYMC medical students provide quality care and serve the underserved and uninsured of Westchester County, by making
your tax deductible gift of $50 or more, or an amount comfortable to you.

Regardless of size every gift will make a difference and will bring us closer to opening La casita de la salud in Westchester County.
