The first cases of AIDS were diagnosed more than 30 years ago. Since then, the Bronx, a borough of New York City, has experienced one of the highest rates of HIV infection of any county in the nation.

We provide a comprehensive array of medical and support services for persons with HIV and other infectious diseases. Our physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants are HIV specialists and recognized as experts in their fields. We offer the most advanced therapies and diagnostic tests for the evaluation and management of HIV.
