Through developing this new community healthcare and fitness center, PCC aims to create a home supporting its mission, serving as a model in community healthcare. The new building will be a certified WELL Building, a certification program offered by the International WELL Building Institute™ (IWBI™), a roadmap for creating and licensing spaces that promote human health and well-being. IWBI invited PCC to pilot its most impactful program and to become one of the first WELL-certified campuses in the country.

The new facility will be located at 5461 West Lake Street, adjacent to its existing Austin Family Health Center in Austin on the south side of Lake Street, between Lotus and Pine. The new building will increase PCC’s capacity to provide health care services to more residents of Austin, given that the existing clinic only has 14 exam rooms and the new clinic will have 24 exam rooms.

Additionally, once primary care services move to the new building, the existing Austin Family Health Center at 5425 West Lake Street will offer on-site specialty care to patients. Presently, PCC patients do not have easy access to specialty care. Soon, they will be able to obtain specialty care right in their neighborhood.

We extend our deepest gratitude to all stakeholders involved in this transformative project, including the PCC Foundation, the City of Chicago, 37th Ward Alderman Emma Mitts, Rep. La Shawn K. Ford, Congressman Danny K. Davis, Cook County Land Bank Authority, among others. Their support and collaboration have been instrumental in bringing this vision to life.
