About Us

NewYork-Presbyterian has two Centers on Aging: the Irving S. Wright Center on Aging located near NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell on Manhattan's Upper East Side, and the Department of Geriatric Medicine and Aging located at NewYork-Presbyterian/The Allen Hospital in the Inwood section of Manhattan.

The Centers are staffed by physicians, nurses, and other caregivers who specialize in treating older adults. They also help facilitate care with specialists in other departments.

Health Outreach

The Centers offer Health Outreach, a free program that promotes health and quality of life for adults 60 years of age or older. Members have access to services ranging from health lectures, workshops, and classes to individualized counseling, support groups, and social events, as well as assistance for caregivers.

Additionally, Health Outreach staff can help patients access hospital and community services and offer guidance with insurance claims and benefits issues, prescriptions, and physician referrals.

To Enroll in Health Outreach, please contact either location. The telephone numbers are at the bottom of the page.
