The South End Community Health Center
CEO Bill Walczak

Founded in 1969 by a renowned pediatrician, Dr. Gerald Hass, and neighborhood activists, the South End Community Health Center provides adult and family medicine, pediatrics, behavioral health, dental and eye care, as well as women’s health. For nearly 50 years, the health center has been widely recognized for high-quality, linguistically and culturally sensitive care provided to all members of our community, regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, sex, sexual orientation, physical ability, and/or income. In 2012, the South End Community Health Center opened the Dr. Gerald Hass Center, the first full-time school-based health center in Boston, which offers medical, behavioral and dental services to the community and nearly 600 students of the Blackstone Innovation Elementary School.
