Codman Square Health Center Inc.

Codman Square Health Center (CSHC) is a Federally-Qualified Health Center that has been providing primary, preventive, and urgent health care to a high risk, low-income and underinsured patient population since 1979. The center serves more than 22,000 patients and has over 100,000 patient contacts per year. To accommodate increasing demand, CSHC recently completed a major expansion and renovation project. CSHC renovated the existing clinic and built a 34,000-square-foot addition. In the expanded facility, the center is able to serve more patients, add new specialty services and improve the quality of care it provides.
As well as being recognized for the high quality services it provides, CSHC has been recognized for developing unique collaborative models to alleviate poverty through health and education. Notably, it has partnered with Codman Academy Charter School – the only charter school that is housed within a health facility building in the United States. This partnership has been recognized by the White House Office of Social Innovation as a potential model to replicate in community health centers across the country.
