Lynn Community Health Center breaks ground Posted by on

The Carpenters union has been working with staff and elected officials in Lynn to find funds to expand the Lynn Community Health Center. The facility provides badly needed access to care for the area and will now provide quality union construction jobs.

A ground breaking was held last week with Congressman John Tierney, Governor Deval Patrick, Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy and others in attendance.

"This is the first construction project of this size in downtown Lynn in many years," said Patrick, adding that more than 100 jobs will come from the actual construction work and later through the health center's expanded services. "This is just so many cylinders all going at once. The residents of Lynn are fortunate to have such a vibrant resource that is growing and changing in response to community need."
