Nobody told Bill Walczak that his name would adorn the façade of a Codman Square’s newest building. The board at Codman — the health center that he founded and led from the 1970s until two years ago— wanted to surprise him. Like most people, Walczak knew nothing about the honor until he arrived to see the finished product during an open house a few months ago.

“The William J. Walczak Health and Education Center” —which houses elements of the health center and the Codman Academy Charter Public School— was officially dedicated in a Tuesday morning ceremony. A large crowd assembled in the building’s black-box theatre as Mayor Thomas M. Menino cut the ribbon and lavished much-deserved praise on Walczak, the center and the school.  Read more

Mayor Thomas Menino was on hand for this morning's official dedication of the William J. Walczak Health and Education Center—which houses elements of the health center and the Codman Academy Charter Public School—. A large crowd assembled in the building’s black-box theatre as Mayor Thomas M. Menino cut the ribbon and lavished much-deserved praise on Walczak, the center and the school.

The 34,000 square brick-and-stone building has transformed the corner of Norfolk and Epping Street. The $18 million project— boosted by nearly $8 million in federal stimulus dollars— gives Codman the capacity it needs to serve up to 30,000 patients per year. It also will allow Codman Academy— acclaimed for its academics and theatre/arts training— to grow and thrive.  Read more

Codman's latest addition: Sandra Cotterell, CEO of the Codman Square Health Center, left and Meg Campbell, executive director of the Codman Academy Charter Public School, outside the newly-opened William J. Walczak Education and Health Center on Epping Street.

It’s a brand new four-story building with a strikingly familiar name.

The William J. Walczak Education and Health Center — named for the founder of the Codman Square Health Center— is open for business – and classes. An official grand opening is on hold pending the return to action of the only other living Bostonian who gets his name on big new buildings these days – Mayor Thomas Menino – but the building itself has been in partial use since September and is due to be fully up and running by year’s end.  Read more
