A Jamaica clinic will be renovated and renamed after the former first lady of New York, and mother of the current governor, Matilda Raffa Cuomo.
Brightpoint Health, a nonprofit healthcare provider, decided to honor Cuomo’s legacy of charitable and humanitarian efforts. She helped found the organization.
The health center will offer integrated behavioral health and primary care services to address mental health and substance abuse issues. The clinic currently serves over 60,000 patients and clients.
The expanded center includes an additional 3,000 square feet.
“My mother has dedicated her life to helping the less fortunate and uplifting New Yorkers in need, and I applaud the renaming of this facility to honor her long career of service,” said Governor Andrew Cuomo.
