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 is the new SBH Health and Wellness Center, which opened in late 2020. Included is the Healthplex Fitness Center, the SBH Teaching Kitchen, centers for Women’s Imaging, Children’s Health and Women’s Health, a WIC site and a rooftop farm (with a food pantry and four bee hives where honey is produced). In a short time, the services here have already been a huge difference in the health and wellness of our patients.
