BOSTON – BOND, a building, civil, utility and energy construction firm, announced the completion of 20,000 SF of the newly renovated expansion space at Lynn Community Health Center (LCHC) located at 269 Union Street in Lynn.
Lynn Community Health Center is the medical care home to more than 40,000 patients and for over 40 percent of the population who live in the city. This project is part of the LCHC’s Stephen D. Hayes Building that BOND completed construction of in 2012.
“BOND is proud to play a pivotal role in the expansion and transformation of the Lynn Community Health Center,” said Michael Walsh, BOND’s Vice President of Healthcare and Life Sciences. “It is an honor to serve such a valued client and to help them accomplish their mission to meet affordable, community-based, urgent healthcare needs.”
The construction of the newly renovated space will better provide patients with healthcare by increasing access to primary care, urgent care, health promotion and prevention services for the community. The renovated space on the 2nd and 3rd floor houses Pediatrics, Primary Care, Behavioral Health, Immigration/Refugee Services, Employee Health, TB/HIV, Podiatry and outreach for community health workers.
A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and tours of the newly renovated space were held to mark this celebrated event. Bill Mantzoukas, Founder and Board Member for the Health Center was presented with the John S. Moran Award for Community Service. He also received legislative citations by a representative from U.S. Representative Seth Moulton’s office and Massachusetts State Senator Thomas McGee. The celebration and unveiling came during National Health Center Week 2017, surrounding the theme “Celebrating America’s Health Centers: The Key to Healthier Communities.”
