HIV & Primary Care, A Holistic Approach
With its partner CAN Community Health, METRO remains the only area organization offering primary care alongside HIV care, treatment and case management. We offer over 100 services under one roof, meaning we connect all patients with the physical and emotional care services they need for optimal health and wellbeing.

Treatments have become more simplified and streamlined. Because of access to federal, state and local partners, we’re not only first in line to know the latest in advanced HIV treatments, we make it our business to stay on top of how they apply to each individual patient.

Through our Copay it Forward program, every insured patient of METRO is making quality healthcare available to uninsured members of our community, just by walking through the door.
LGBTQ+ Inclusive Focused Health
With its roots in serving the LGBTQ+ community, METRO is proud to provide inclusive community health services for over 25 years, no judgement and stigma free. Got questions? We’ve got answers.

Getting to Undetectable
With our advanced knowledge, we help HIV+ patients get to “undetectable” status. That means there is so little of virus in your body, it can’t be detected by a test. It also means you can stay healthy and the likelihood of spreading the virus to partners, decreases.
