LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending the Bedford-Stuyvesant Family Health
Center upon the occasion of its 35th Anniversary

WHEREAS, It is the custom of this Legislative Body to recognize that the
quality of life in the communities across this great State of New York
is enriched by the concerned and dedicated efforts of those organiza-
tions of distinction whose singular purpose is the care and welfare of
others; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to commend
the Bedford-Stuyvesant Family Health Center upon the occasion of its
35th Anniversary, to be celebrated at a Dinner, "Embracing New Begin-
nings" at Glen Terrace in Brooklyn, New York; and
WHEREAS, The Bedford-Stuyvesant Family Health Center began serving the
primary health care needs of its Central Brooklyn/Bedford-Stuyvesant
community in 1978; and
WHEREAS, Highly regarded for its array and quality of services, the
Bedford-Stuyvesant Family Health Center is reflective of the diverse
neighborhoods it serves; it has a full staff of culturally sensitive
physicians and personnel who speak English, Spanish, French Creole and
many other dialects; signing capability for the hearing impaired is also
available on-site; and
WHEREAS, In April of 2012 the Center moved from the 10,000 square feet
rented space it had occupied for 23 years to its newly constructed
state-of-the-art 38,000 square feet facility diagonally across the
street; the new building represents a renewed commitment to the health
and well-being of Central Brooklyn; and
WHEREAS, Our community health centers serve the vital purpose of
providing for the healthcare needs of our citizens through excellence in
the delivery of medical services; and
WHEREAS, The Bedford-Stuyvesant Family Health Center, and its expert
staff, has had a long and sustained commitment to the health and welfare
of its unique and diverse community and therefore merits the highest
commendation of this Legislative Body; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body is justly proud to commend the
Bedford-Stuyvesant Family Health Center upon the occasion of its 35th
Anniversary, fully confident that it will continue to play a leadership
role in healthcare for many years to come; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the Bedford-Stuyvesant Family Health Center.
