Whitman-Walker Health on Tuesday announced it will lease nearly 43,000 square feet in a building currently under construction at 1525 14th St., N.W., between P and Q Streets in Logan Circle.

Chip Lewis, spokesperson for Whitman-Walker, told the Washington Blade the new location will house most of the agency’s health care services once it opens in mid-2014. Whitman-Walker’s administrative offices, along with a handful of patient programs will remain at the Elizabeth Taylor Medical Center at 1701 14th St., N.W.

The organization’s Max Robinson Center is located on Martin Luther King Jr., Avenue, S.E., in Anacostia.

“We are going to be clearly expanding our capacity for patients,” Lewis said. “We are going to be expanding our services. We are going to be adding some new services, so it’s going to be quite a big deal when it comes together.”

The Blade will provide more details as they become available.

    Congratulations to WWH and to Don Blanchon for the expansion and success of Whitman Walker. The organization has come a long way since Don became its Executive Director and the community has seen the benefits.
