Welcome to SBH Health System family. We love serving people in the Bronx community. We want to make sure you get the best care possible. We want you to get healthy and stay healthy no matter your ability to pay. While you are here, we hope you and your loved ones enjoy our beautiful campus located in the heart of the Bronx. We have many locations throughout the Bronx where you can see other SBH providers for many other conditions.
Across from the hospital, on Third Avenue, you may notice some construction happening. We are building a new health and wellness center with over 300 affordable housing units. The center will have a health clinic, gym, pharmacy, healthy food café, farmer’s market, and daycare center. Patients can take healthy cooking classes, learn how to lose weight, and even grow fruits and vegetables on a rooftop garden. The center is scheduled to open in Fall 2019.
SBH is proud to be a teaching hospital for medical students and
residents on their way to becoming doctors. You’ll see the very best students from Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education/CUNY School of Medicine, New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
Central to our healthcare system is St. Barnabas Hospital, a 422-bed, not-for-profit, nonsectarian, acute care community hospital and Level 2 Trauma Center authorized to treat the most critically ill and severely injured patients.
