Henry J. Austin Health Center at Ewing Street

Henry J. Austin Health Center operates at four locations in the greater Trenton area. Its Health Care for the Homeless program is located in a new, state-of-the-art facility across the street from a shelter for homeless individuals and a new transitional housing program for families. The project employs two full-time adult medicine/GYN providers, a part-time pediatrician, behavioral health care, and social work services at its Ewing Street location. These services complement the full lifecycle of primary care offered at Austin’s North Warren Street location and its satellite sites at Chambers Street in Trenton and in Hamilton Township.
