About Harvard Street Neighborhood Health Center

Our Mission & History

Harvard Street Neighborhood Health Center (HSNHC) serves as the primary health resource to our community, through the delivery of comprehensive patient-centered medical care. We believe all people have the right to high-quality, available, accessible healthcare regardless of a person’s ability to pay for service.

HSNHC first opened in 1969 at 895 Blue Hill Avenue as part of the Boston Department of Health and Hospitals. In 1976, HSNHC became an independent not-for-profit institution and relocated its main service location to the current location at 632 Blue Hill Avenue. Designated as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), HSNHC continues to provide a comprehensive system of care that is responsive to our community’s health care needs.

Our trained and caring providers, nurses, and medical assistants are dedicated to ensuring that high-quality care is being delivered to all we serve. The health center constantly strives to maintain a culture of continuous quality improvement by implementing evidence-based best practices in order to achieve our organizational mission, vision, and goals. HSNHC is committed to treating patients, families, and staff with dignity, while communicating and sharing information effectively; thus serving as a leader of innovative population health initiatives.

To deliver on our mission, and to achieve our vision, we rely on core values to guide our work, namely:

  • Dedication to staff and clinicians
  • Meaningful and impactful engagement with patients and families
  • Stability within the community and organization
