The Bedford Stuyvesant Family Health Center has a full staff of culturally sensitive male and female physicians and staff. We speak English, Spanish, French Creole and many other dialects. For the Deaf, signing capability is also on-site. To see additional photos of the staff, please visit the Photo Galleries below.
The Bedford Stuyvesant Family Health Center is a free standing not-for-profit 501 (c)(3) Federally Qualified Health Center which began serving the Central Brooklyn/Bedford Stuyvesant community in 1978.
For 23 years, the Center was located in a 10,000 square feet rented space at 1413 Fulton Street. In April 2012, the Center moved to its newly constructed state-of-the-art 38,000 square feet facility diagonally across the street at 1456 Fulton Street.
The new health center is thus more than a new building. It represents a renewed investment in the comprehensive health care of Bedford Stuyvesant - an area that has lagged for too long behind the city and nation in the indicators of healthy living, behavioral health and wellness. In the new 38,000 square foot facility, BSFHC will be able to serve all of the primary health care needs of more than 20,000 Brooklyn residents.
The City Council has been generous in its support for this worthy project. Others contributing to this project have included the New York State Department of Health with a pledge of $1 million, and the Primary Care Development Corporation has provided soft loans for site acquisition and supplementary design, as well as other technical assistance.
BSFHC’s new facility was completed at a cost of $26 million. Our Capital Campaign has received tremendous support from the New York City Council, the Brooklyn Borough President, the Brooklyn Community Foundation and other government/private funding sources.
