Largest Provider of HIV/AIDS Outpatient Care in New England Launches Fund-Raising Campaign for New Clinic, Research Center

September 20, 2006

The Fenway Community Health center in Boston, the largest provider of outpatient care for HIV-positive people in New England, recently launched a fund-raising initiative to aid in the construction of a 10-story, 100,000-square-foot clinic and research center, the Boston Globe reports. The initiative already has raised $7.1 million and aims to raise $16 million total in private donations for the $55 million project. The new clinic is scheduled to be completed in 2008, according to developers Samuels and Associates. The new clinic, which will include 215 residential units, also will be funded by the sale of the clinic's current building, tax credits and the sale of about $28 million in debt bonds, according to FCH President and CEO Stephen Boswell. FCH serves more than 1,100 HIV-positive people and conducts about 2,000 HIV tests annually, according to the Globe. It also has conducted research and clinical trials on AIDS vaccines and methods for curbing the spread of the disease. FCH -- which is one of seven health centers in the country that specializes in treating gays and lesbians -- also plans to open subsidiary clinics tailored to specific Boston neighborhoods, the Globe reports (Rowland, Boston Globe, 9/19).
