Brownfields Converted to Health Centers

The Mattapan Community Health Center (MCHC) was established in 1972, during which it has been the only support to a low-income, medically-underserved community facing some of Boston’s most serious health problems. This approximately $34 million state-of-the-art facility has capacity to accommodate expanded clinical, dental, and lab needs of its existing patients as well as new patients in Mattapan and surrounding communities.

The state-of-the-art Providence Community Health Centers (PCHC) facility is located on the site of the former Federated Lithographers and Beaman and Smith Company (BSC) factories in South Providence. PCHC is the largest primary health care provided in Rhode Island with a committment to providing quality care to the medically underserved.
