Alegria Health & Wellness, a full-service medical facility in the South Bronx, has officially begun treating patients for primary care, in addition to specialties for women and children. The state-of-the-art facility has experienced doctors and nurses to ensure each patient receives the treatment they need, as well as sound medical advice to keep them healthy.
“We’ve decided to focus on these first three community services because they’re most needed,” said Dr. Walid Michelen, Chief Medical Officer of Alegria. “In planning our medical facility and our vision for it, we chose to open in the South Bronx to give residents more opportunities to improve their health and wellness.”
Some of the services now provided include disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic diseases, mammograms, STI testing and treatment, inoculations, illness visits and orthopedic care.
As Alegria expands its services, patients can have their teeth brushed, see a podiatrist and oncologist, as well as a behavioral therapist. You can view all available services on the center’s website, www.alegriahealthbronx.com.
