EOHSI Clinical Center Recipient of $50 Million Award from CDC/NIOSH

The EOHSI Clinical Center has received an 8-year $50 million dollar funding award from the CDC/NIOSH to continue to operate as a Clinical Center of Excellence for the federal World Trade Center Health Program. The clinic has 20 years of experience providing high quality medical and mental health care to 9/11 First Responders with a current patient cohort of over 5,000 members. EOHSI is uniquely qualified to meet the growing needs of this population due to its broad and multidisciplinary faculty and staff and expertise in the areas of exposure science and environmental health. We are excited and honored to continue this partnership with NIOSH and to provide ongoing comprehensive care to those who participated in the rescue and recovery efforts in the months following the 9/11 attacks.

The World Trade Center (WTC) Health Program offers high-quality, compassionate care to those directly affected by the September 11th terrorist attacks in New York, the Pentagon, and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Please see below for general information and background about our Program.

It is dedicated to helping those who were there in the days and months following September 11th. We determine eligibility for the Program based on what members did following 9/11, where they were, and how long they there.
