The New York City Research and Improvement Networking Group (NYC RING)

Network Sites

The practices that form NYC RING's core are community-based primary care practices which target services to the minority underserved population in the Bronx, Queens, lower Manhattan, and southern Westchester County.

NYC RING facilities offer a diversity of urban primary care practices with different provider specialties, medical disciplines, and ethnic mixes, such as:  
  • More than 200 Board-certified primary care physicians, including internists, pediatricians, family physicians, and Obstetricians-Gynecologists.   
  • Approximately 55% of the physicians are women and 32% are physicians of color, principally African-American and Hispanic, with some of Asian and Middle Eastern ethnic backgrounds.   
  • Overall, 90% of patients served by our partner sites are minorities.   
  • Almost half of patients are Hispanic, about a third are Black, and Whites and Other comprise relatively equal proportions.   
  • Partner practices have substantial proportions of uninsured patients.    
  • Over half of patients are enrolled in managed care plans.   
  • Six sites are federally-funded community health centers.   
  • Manhattan practices provide access to a mixed demographic, including much larger proportions of Caucasian patients.
