WTC Health Program
The CDC’s response to the serious public health threat caused by the COVID-19 respiratory virus pandemic includes guidance on social distancing – or the limiting of gatherings and increasing the physical distance between people—to stop further spread of the virus.

Therefore, Monitoring Exams at BHS and all satellite locations are being suspended for our retired members until further notice. This includes 9 Metrotech Center, Commack, Staten Island, Fort Totten and Middletown.

If you have an issue you need to be addressed, BHS Physicians and Nurse Practitioners are available for a telephone or video treatment Telehealth visit. Please call (718) 999-1858 for further details or to schedule an appointment.

We encourage everyone to do their part by following guidelines and social distancing to stop community spread of the virus.

Welcome to the FDNY Clinical Center Website

The FDNY CCE and its World Trade Center (WTC) Health Program provide comprehensive physical and mental health services to all active and retired FDNY members who responded to the 9/11 attacks. This program is based within the Department’s Bureau of Health Services (BHS) and evolved from efforts that began decades before September 11, 2001, and continued uninterrupted on September 11, 2001, treating injured FDNY rescue workers (firefighters and emergency medical services [EMS]) and civilians at ground zero, even as the towers fell. This treatment continued in the disaster’s aftermath to provide physical and mental health treatment to our rescue and recovery workers in the days, months, and now years, after.

Patient Process

The Program provides a comprehensive monitoring and treatment exam, at no cost to you. The exam is very similar to those active members receive.
