#NHCW15 Photo of the Day: The Early Days at Walton Family Health Center

August 11, 2015

New York, NY (August 11, 2015) – Today marks day 3 of National Health Center Week.  For our third “Photo of the Day” we are highlighting one of our health centers located in the Bronx – Walton Family Health Center.

Walton Early Days

“This was a time when we were relatively new to the neighborhood. We almost immediately had people coming in of all ages. The nice thing was within one year we were busy and have stayed that way since! It just confirmed that we made the right decision to move into the [Walton] neighborhood. There was clearly a need and it felt really good to be there. Patients always tell me how they feel welcomed and cared for at Walton Family Health Center. The patients are deeply connected to staff from the front desk to the providers. They know that everyone is here to help with whatever their health care need may be. This health center truly belongs to the community.” – Yvonne Eisner, RN, FNP-BC; Co-founder, Institute for Family Health and Clinical Director for Walton Family Health Center
