What is ExpressCare?

ExpressCare is a fast, easy way for patients to see a provider for common physical, mental, emotional, and behavioral health issues that are not emergencies.

Choose to see a provider now over video 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You must be in New York State at the time of your visit. You can also visit a NYC Health and Hospitals in-person center in your neighborhood. No appointment needed (see our locations below).
