(Washington, DC) – On Monday, September 18 at 11 am, Mayor Muriel Bowser will cut the ribbon on Whitman-Walker’s new Max Robinson Center at the St. Elizabeths East campus in Ward 8. The new 118,000 square-foot healthcare and research facility will provide primary, behavioral, HIV, dental, and substance use services, alongside a pharmacy and other care resources.
The Max Robinson Center will greatly increase Whitman-Walker’s care capacity, serving an additional 10,000 patients and clients per year and expanding access to care for residents living in Wards 7 and 8.
The Max Robinson Center is the latest addition to the St. Elizabeths East Campus redevelopment in Ward 8. To date, Mayor Bowser has invested nearly $900 million in the redevelopment, which includes the opening of the Entertainment and Sports Arena, the new 801 Men’s Shelter, the District Townhomes, the Residences at St. Elizabeths, a 750-space parking garage at the Entertainment and Sports Arena, and the Sycamore & Oak retail village. In June, the District celebrated the topping-off of the Cedar Hill Regional Medical Center GW Health facility, a full-service hospital expected to be completed in 2025.
