Our History

Harvard Neighborhood Health Center (HSNHC), first opened for business in 1969 at 895 Blue Hill Avenue as part of the Boston Department of Health and Hospitals. In 1976, HSNHC became an independent, non-profit and relocated its main office to 632 Blue Hill Avenue. Designated as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) Look-Alike health center in 1992, HSNHC continues to provide comprehensive system of care that is responsive to our community’s health care needs. In spite of past hurdles, HSNHC always manages to overcome each obstacle and repositions itself to better serve the community.

Since its inception, HSNHC continues its mission to serve as a primary health resource through the delivery of comprehensive patient-centered medical care without regard to race, sex, color, political philosophy, religious beliefs or one’s ability to pay. We are firm believers that all people have the right to high quality, available and accessible healthcare.
