Caring Health Center - Springfield, MA
The Caring Health Center project was the rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of three contiguous buildings in the Smith Carriage Company Historic District of Springfield, which improves healthcare in a medically underserved area. The $21.5 million project has a 45,000 square-foot community health center, including 30 new exam rooms, 12 new dental operatories, a wellness center, pharmacy, and administrative space. Currently, only 25% of low-income residents in Caring Health Center’s service area are accessing medical care. Building the new facility doubled the Center’s capacity to serve low-income medical and dental patients and permitted the repurposing of the previous Main Street clinic into a Maternal and Child Health Center.
