Whitman-Walker expands in Logan Circle

 Rendering of Whitman-Walker's future home in Logan Circle

Whitman-Walker Health, a community health center specializing in HIV/AIDS care, is expanding its presence in Washington’s Logan Circle neighborhood. The local non-profit, which has a location in the area and another in Anacostia, will be the only tenant in the new building being developed at 1525 14th Street NW, according to its developer Giorgio Furioso.

Whitman-Walker will occupy the building’s nearly 43,000 square feet and offer a larger pharmacy, a travel medicine clinic, and more services. The move is scheduled for mid-2014.

“The clinic will have around 160 people…working there,” Furioso says. He adds the project could take “14 months in construction and I suspect a little bit more than three months plus to build the tenant builduot.”

During the construction, Whitman-Walker’s board of directors says it will take community and sponsor feedback on the future of its existing facilities -- Max Robinson Center at 2301 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave. SE and Elizabeth Taylor Medical Center at 1701 14th St. NW -- although both centers will still to continue provide health care services during the process.

“Whitman-Walker has nearly doubled our patient base over the past six years and we expect growth to continue as more residents access care through the new health reform law,” Don Blanchon, the non-profit’s executive director, said in a statement.
