Welcome to Hudson River Health Care (HRHCare)!
Founded over 40 years ago as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), Hudson River Health Care (HRHCare) is one of the nation’s largest community health providers. The HRHCare network of 43 health centers throughout the Hudson Valley, New York City, and Long Island provides affordable, accessible care to over 225,000 patients annually. The network’s exceptional primary care practitioners, specialists, and support staff have made HRHCare a destination for convenient, high-quality care for all.
In December 2018, Brightpoint Health joined HRHCare. Prior to this event, Brightpoint Health was an FQHC network of 13 sites offering integrated medical, behavioral, and social support services to 45,000 patients annually in all five boroughs of New York City.

Join Hudson River Health Care for a summer to learn more about the importance of community health, and experience health care delivery from an FQHC perspective. The internship includes:
- 320 hours, with flexibility in scheduling
- Summer stipend
- Work experience in our Tarrytown and Peekskill offices
“Penn State’s School of Communications had an excellent alumni program, with speakers coming to us to discuss career and internship opportunities. I graduated thinking I would be doing advertising at an agency in New York City, but after doing PR/Communications at HRHCare, I decided health care was what I was really passionate about. I’ve since gotten my MHA degree, and am loving the community health world!”
– Laura Kreiser, HRHCare Communications Department, 2013
