Our History

On July 31, 1971, the very first Chinatown Health Fair was organized by a group of volunteers to provide health education and screenings to the medically underserved Chinese community in New York City. Following the tremendous community response, the Chinatown Health Clinic opened its doors that same year, ran entirely by volunteer doctors, nurses, social workers, community health workers, and students. The Health Center has continuously expanded and grown to provide bilingual and bicultural healthcare services to underserved communities. Today, the Charles B. Wang Community Health Center is a NCQA level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home. We have three sites in Lower Manhattan and two in Flushing, Queens, serving more than 52,000 patients and 280,000 service visits in 2016.
