Adair provides community-based primary care to adults and children living in Central Harlem and northern Manhattan. With deep ties to the community, our services address the cultural, economic, and social barriers to health care.
Ryan Health offers primary care and a wide array of other services at each of our health centers.
In 1967, Ryan Health was established to meet the community's need for healthcare services on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. In 1977, it became an independent, community-controlled health center, and in 1978, was renamed in memory of its greatest advocate, U. S. Congressman William F. Ryan. During the next four decades, the health center continued to expand to meet the needs of its communities. Today, Ryan Health provides access to a wide range of high-quality, affordable, health care services for almost 50,000 patients every year.
We remain committed to our founding principle, "Health care is a right, not a privilege."

Randalls Island (also called Randall's Island) and Wards Island are conjoined islands, collectively called Randalls and Wards Islands, in the New York City borough of Manhattan, separated from Manhattan by the Harlem River, from Queens by the East River and Hell Gate, and from the Bronx by the Bronx Kill. The two islands were formerly separate, with the channel between them, Little Hell Gate, being filled in by the early 1960s. Most of the island is parkland, spanning a total of 432.69 acres. The parks offer athletic fields, a driving range, greenways, playgrounds, and picnic grounds. The island is crossed by the Triborough and Hell Gate bridges. The island can be reached by the Triborough Bridge; the Wards Island Bridge, which serves pedestrians and bicyclists and links the island to East Harlem in Manhattan; or by the Randalls Island Connector, a pedestrian and cycling bridge crossing the Bronx Kill and connecting to the Port Morris neighborhood of the Bronx. Randalls Island is the home of three music festivals: Governors Ball Music Festival, Panorama Music Festival, and Electric Zoo Festival.
