William F. Ryan Community Health Center

Since 1967, the William F. Ryan Community Health Network (Ryan Center) has provided high quality, affordable, culturally and linguistically competent, primary and preventive health care, dental, mental health, and support services to medically underserved residents in Manhattan.  The Ryan Network mission is supported by the founding principle that health care is a right, not a privilege.
