Whittier Street Health Center
Supporting community space creation in the neighborhoods
The Whittier Health Center moved into its new space in Campus High in 2012. This accomplishment was a major milestone for the health center, as it was the first time in the organization's 78 year history that it was working out of a location that it designed and built, and its new home on Tremont Street was nearly triple the size of its old location. The new location allowed the health center to increase its capacity from 68,000 to 220,000 patient visits per year, and houses a variety of medical and dental offices, a pharmacy, a physical therapy clinic, and community space with educational programs and resources including computer kiosks. This completion of the project benefited from Urban Renewal title clearance and land assembly.
