The Center for Comprehensive Care has a new name!
St. Luke’s and Roosevelt Hospitals
Spencer Cox Center for Health
On June 11, 2013, the Center for Comprehensive Care adopted a new name: the Spencer Cox Center for Health. The life of Spencer Cox, his identity as a person with HIV and member of a minority community, his personal values and his achievements in developing life-saving treatments and forever changing the patient-provider dynamic reflects the Center’s values and history and its future aspirations. Spencer’s passionate dedication to the principle that everyone deserves access to high quality care has particular resonance at the Center, where the right to health is at the core of our mission.
Developed as a center for excellence in the care and treatment of people living with HIV/AIDS, in 2009 the Center expanded the population we serve to include HIV-negative individuals, particularly those with other chronic illnesses. Today Spencer Cox provides care to over 8,000 children, adults and families, regardless of HIV status, from a diverse range of underserved communities, including women of color, LGBT, youth, the formerly incarcerated, immigrants, the homeless and the poor from across the five boroughs of New York City.
All of the Center’s staff are highly trained and experts in their field. Our doors are open to anyone who walks through them. Our patients enjoy a variety of medical services including dental care, behavioral health as well as an on-site pharmacy, which allows them to walk out the door with all of their needs met.
The Spencer Cox Center for Health has achieved a Level 3 recognition – the highest level possible – by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH).
