Our History

Harvard Street Neighborhood Health Center (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 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. HSNHC strives to be positioned to better serve the community.

Since its inception, HSNHC has continued in 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.
