FXB Ambulatory Care Center

FXB Center’s clinical program has been a leader in HIV care since the mid-1980s when it was based at the Children’s Hospital of New Jersey and cared for 50 children who were infected with a virus not yet identified as HIV. In the 30 years since, much has changed; the FXB Center’s numbers swelled, mirroring the HIV epidemic in the United States, and then fell as combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) medications were routinely used to reduce mother-to-child transmission of HIV. Today, the FXB Ambulatory Care Center meets the healthcare and social service needs of more than 250 families with HIV through the provision of interprofessional, comprehensive HIV services which address care across the HIV care continuum.  

Clinical Practice Approach

We deliver client and family-centered care by valuing our relationship with the community, working to eliminate health disparities by promoting self-care and shared decision-making, and providing support to clients and families navigating complex social and healthcare contexts. We are advanced practice nurses, nurses, social workers, psychologists, nutritionists, and case managers who provide healthcare, coordinated medical case management services, community outreach, and education for the clients and families we serve. Continuous quality improvement is emphasized in all that we do.
