NYC Street Medicine: A Human-Centered Approach in Healthcare to Housing, and Housing to Health

Just as housing can lead to health, so too can health care lead to housing. This endeavor is foundational to the Street Health Outreach & Wellness (SHOW) initiative, run by New York City Health + Hospitals, the largest municipal healthcare organization in the nation. From a human-centered aim, the SHOW program utilizes street medicine and the system’s Primary Care Safety Net clinics to engage individuals who are street homeless and provide wrap-around services that forge that pathway from health care to housing, and with housing to health and wellbeing.
