ABOUT CODMAN SQUARE HEALTH CENTER
Codman Square Health Center (CSHC) is a community-based, community focused outpatient health care and multi-service center in the heart of Dorchester. CSHC opened its doors in 1979 with a dream: to build the best urban community in America. As part of this dream, they recognized that though health care begins by alleviating sickness, the journey to a true “culture of health” is achieved through the health of the whole person and the whole community. The two-physician staff that summer of 1979 may have been small, but the commitment to the community was deep and the vision optimistic.
Today, with annual revenue close to $35M, CSHC is home to a staff of over 300 multi-lingual and multi-cultural expert clinicians, medical staff and employees, most of whom reside in the neighborhoods surrounding Codman Square. The organization boasts more than 110,000 client contacts each year, and has developed an astounding depth and breadth of community programs, as well as strong partnerships with other organizations in order to meet its mission most efficiently.
Codman Square Health Center is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) and receives federal support through its designation as a Section 330 community health center. For more information, visit: www.codman.org.
