Chelsea Village House Call Program
From its founding in 1973 until St. Vincent's Hospital's closing in May 2010, the Chelsea-Village Program provided in-home, multilingual, interdisciplinary primary medical care to frail and elderly homebound residents in the Chelsea, Greenwich Village, Chinatown and lower East Side areas of Manhattan. Following the closing of St. Vincent's Hospital, the program was adopted by The Mount Sinai Visiting Doctors Program and renamed The Mount Sinai Chelsea-Village House Call Program (CVHCP).
In its new home at Mount Sinai, CVHCP continues to provide in-home medical and support services to allow elderly patients to remain in their homes and communities with the maximum possible level of independence, health, and quality of life. The program's patients are among Manhattan's most medically-underserved populations: all are homebound, two-thirds live alone, three-quarters are women and the average age is 83. With the help of CVHCP's compassionate, coordinated and multidisciplinary care, these patients can receive the finest in medical care in the comfort of their own homes.
