Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) is proud of the role we play in our community here in Washington Heights and New York City. Our Office of Government & Community Affairs develops and implements programs with the communities surrounding CUIMC, and serves as the primary liaison between the medical center and the external community. GCA coordinates information on services and programs available at the medical center campus, and works with community stakeholders, local residents and community-based providers.
