Max Robinson Center

This summer, Whitman-Walker will mark the 50th anniversary year with the debut of our new health care and research home on the campus of Saint Elizabeths East, already home to the Entertainment & Sports Arena and the future site of mixed-income for-sale and rental housing, a new full-service hospital, new office and retail, and other neighborhood-serving amenities. The new 118,000-square-foot center to continue to be called the Max Robinson Center will build on the services and legacy provided at Whitman-Walker’s current Max Robinson Center on Martin Luther King Jr Avenue SE by providing primary, behavioral, and dental care; a pharmacy; public benefits and insurance navigation services; and research, policy advocacy, education, and training around LGBTQ health, HIV care, and other areas of Whitman-Walker’s experience and expertise. The project will allow the organization to serve an additional 10,000 patients per year beginning in 2023. Additionally, the new research space will open in 2024 and triple Whitman-Walker’s current capacity for research and the expansion will allow Whitman-Walker to provide mammography and x-ray service and expand youth care, substance use treatment and other support services.

The development will also include a ground-floor pharmacy, increased care for young people and supply administrative office space for over 100 Whitman-Walker staff. This expansion will allow Whitman-Walker to go from seeing 5,000 patients and clients at the Max Robinson Center per year, to seeing 15,000 annually at the new facility. It will also allow Whitman-Walker to diversify and expand its research portfolio.
