Who We Are

Community Care of Brooklyn is a network of over 1,000 Brooklyn-based health providers and social service organizations that connect partners and develop programs to serve the health care needs of Brooklyn communities. CCB formed in 2015 as a Performing Provider System (PPS) working to achieve the goals set out by New York State under the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment program (DSRIP).

CCB initiatives continue through the work of three partner entities: Brooklyn Communities Collaborative, the Brooklyn Health Home, and CCB Independent Practice Association (IPA). CCB receives administrative support from the Maimonides Department of Population Health. Read more about our current initiatives.
