Whitman-Walker is embarking on a transformative health care expansion in Ward 8, steps from the Congress Heights Metro Station. Expected in 2023, Whitman-Walker will open a 118,000 square foot health care facility at the St. Elizabeths East Campus! Our hope is that this expansion will significantly improve access to care for DC residents who live east of the Anacostia River as we focus on persistent health disparities and service delivery inequities in Ward 8.
On July 15, 2021, Whitman-Walker and partners including Mayor Muriel Bowser, the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, Redbrick LMD and Perkins + Will DC, broke ground on St. Elizabeths East Campus! Watch news coverage on the ground breaking from NBC4 Washington here.
The new, six-story building will consolidate and expand our operations from the Max Robinson Center in Anacostia and our Youth Services location on Capitol Hill — and provide additional programming space for our growing research and education initiatives.
Once fully operational, this expansion will provide vital services and programs to more than 15,000 persons each year—a 200% increase from Whitman-Walker’s current capacity of 5,000 individuals at the existing Max Robinson Center and Youth Services site. This expansion will replace the outdated facilities at the Max Robinson Center and the Youth Services site.
Whitman-Walker is committed to eliminating health disparities and racial inequities in healthcare access in partnership and collaboration with the communities we serve.
