The Health Department Chest Centers provide free evaluation and treatment for Tuberculosis (TB).
Tuberculosis services are always free to the patient. We do not ask about immigration status. See the flyer for more information on City services available to all New Yorkers.
Note: In addition to the regularly scheduled closing dates, the Fort Greene Chest Center will be closed for repairs from October 13 to October 23. It will reopen on Tuesday, October 24. For more information, patients and providers can call the Washington Heights Chest Center at (212) 368-4500, or call 311.
You can be tested if you have risk factors for developing TB disease, including exposure to someone with infectious TB disease. Chest Centers do not offer TB testing for work or school purposes (See "Changes to Services at Chest Centers"). TB testing is available at low or no cost at these facilities (PDF)

What can I expect at my visit?+
The TB chest centers provide several services during one visit, so you may spend a little more time than you would at a typical medical appointment. All TB-related care, including blood work, sputum collection, X-ray and medication, is provided at the center, on the day of your visit, at no cost to you.
How can I get my test results?+
The chest centers do not routinely provide test results via phone, email or text. In most situations, patients are required to return to the clinic to get results and information about next steps needed to complete their evaluation. In some limited cases, with your authorization, TB test results can be mailed to you or your designated provider or program.
