Family and Social Medicine

family and social medicineEstablished in 1978, the Department of Family and Social Medicine plays a significant role in the development of clinical care and training in urban family medicine. Each year, our team of dedicated physicians, nurses, social workers, and specialists provide comprehensive care to approximately 55,000 patients each year. We provide general and specialty care in two primary outpatient clinics of the Montefiore Medical Group, the Family Health Center and Williamsbridge, and have more than 20 affiliated in the Bronx and Westchester, such as Fordham Family and Castle Hill Family Practices.

Through more than 32 years of experience in providing primary and ambulatory care to patients in the Bronx, the Department has gained a reputation for excellence in social medicine. Our patients, ranging in age from newborns to seniors, depend on us for acute care, immunization, sick visits and dental care. Spanning a wide spectrum of social services, we provide everything from flu shots to treatment for severe cases of diabetes and AIDS. Each patient is ensured not only exceptional care but a follow-up appointment within 48 hours. We also offer inpatient and palliative care services for individuals with terminal illnesses.
