Founded as the Asian and Pacific Islander Coalition on HIV/AIDS, Apicha Community Health Center has been providing industry leading healthcare to the NYC community since 1989. In 2009, after two decades of HIV-focused practice, Apicha expanded our nationally recognized HIV care model to include general primary care. This expansion initially included offering primary care to HIV-negative people who were at high risk for HIV, which then led to the establishment of an LGBT clinic, an STI clinic, and Hepatitis screening, immunization, and treatment. In 2011, Apicha launched their Transgender Health Clinic to address the unique healthcare and wellness needs of transgender, gender variant, and gender non-conforming individuals.
When people think of New York City, Manhattan is often the first place they picture. It’s no wonder: the borough is home to big-name attractions, such as Central Park, the Empire State Building, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the High Line and One World Observatory; world-class museums, restaurants and concert halls; and the bright lights of Times Square and Broadway.
Apicha Community Health Center is located in the Lower Manhattan neighborhood, a thriving, culturally diverse area of Manhattan that is the central borough for business, culture, and government for the city of New York. Some of the many area highlights include the Trinity Church, Federal Hall, Wall Street, One World Trade and the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. A well-developed restaurant and shopping scene helps to draw visitors from across the globe to experience some of the best the NYC has to offer.
