There’s a fresh face on Blue Hill Ave. at one of the community’s key health centers. Charley Murphy, a former top state lawmaker, has taken over as the new President and CEO of the Harvard Street Neighborhood Health Center in Dorchester.
Murphy wants to bring more efficiency, as well as more money, to the center. As a “lookalike” health center, Harvard Street is not eligible for federal grants that federally certified centers can apply for. This leaves the center reliant on private donations and the state budgeting process, something Murphy has unique expertise with.
Murphy said his primary qualification for the job is the time he spent helping manage the state’s budget on Beacon Hill. From 2009 to 2011, Murphy served as chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, the chief budget writer under House Speaker Robert DeLeo. Healthcare made up an $11 billion line item in the budget, Murphy said. The budget posting was the culmination of Murphy’s 16 year career in the House. Read more
