Residents, responders, downtown workers and office workers who have symptoms that they feel are due to exposure to the dust and debris resulting from the WTC collapse are eligible for the treatment program. Individuals enrolled in the program are evaluated and treated for WTC-related illnesses. The program includes comprehensive medical evaluations, breathing tests, and mental health screening. Residents, WTC responders and volunteers, and downtown workers may contact the Bellevue Hospital WTC Healthcare Center by calling (212) 562-1720.
