The Dorchester House Multi-Service Center celebrates a groundbreaking for “The Doctor Will See You NOW!”, the 23,536 square foot addition and renovation expansion of the health center. This $11 million project is supported by a $7.02 million federal stimulus grant.
Dorchester House was among only 8 health centers in Massachusetts to receive ARRA funds for facility expansion. The project will add much needed walk-in/urgent care, expand the number of primary care exam rooms, and double the size of the clinic pharmacy – thereby creating access for over 6,600 new patients. In the spirit of the stimulus funds, The NOW! expansion provides about 130 construction related jobs and creates 28 full-time positions within the expanded health center. The groundbreaking ceremony will be held at 11:30 AM at Dorchester House, 1353 Dorchester Avenue. The ceremony will be held outside on the lot, weather permitting.
