A groundbreaking was held yesterday for the Whittier Street Health Center’s $35 million facility on Tremont Street.


The 78,900-square-foot facility will accommodate two-thirds more patients.


“It presents a lot of opportunity for us to really step up to the call of duty,” said Whittier President and CEO Frederica Williams.


“I’m just excited about the opportunity to serve as part of the solution to national health care reform.
