Mattapan Community Health Center commemorates the 40 years of providing health care to our community with a tribute video that shows the journey the health center has made from it humble beginings at 1295 Blue Hill Avenue to 1575 Blue Hill Avenue, which is not a long distance to travel but has made great changes for the good in the lives of the people cared for by MCHC.
Award-winning television journalist, and documentary film producer, Liz Walker, Host of Better Living reports on one of the most effective and cost efficient health care concepts, the community health center, able to provide ongoing preventative and maintenance care for families at an accessible local level. The idea started right here in Massachusetts. In this installment, the Better Living Team explores the Mattapan Community Health Center and the e compelling ways it provides service for its community. On the fast track with the spring completion of a 4 story multi-million dollar facility, MCHC will soon be able to provide even better services for more patients and even more jobs than it currently is providing in the area.
