Dear WWH Patients:
We wanted to send along a little update about the progress on our new Max Robinson Center.
The building is coming along very nicely. We can’t wait to share it with you. We’re still working on confirming an opening date based on the construction timeline and our certificate of occupancy from the DC Government, but we are working towards opening to patient care in mid to late August. In the meantime, the current Max Robinson location in Anacostia will remain open for all your care and wellness needs.
We can also share that we have an official street address for the new Max Robinson site. The address is: 1201 Sycamore Drive, SE. This is a two-block walk from the Congress Heights metro.
This year we are celebrating 50 years of being rooted in the community. If you are interested in getting a sneak peek of the building before we officially open, please join us for the East of the River Fall Festival on August 25th on the St. Elizabeths East Campus at Sycamore and Oak (1110 Oak Dr. SE.) from 2pm to 6pm.
The East of the River Fall Festival will be a community party with live performances, free food, books and backpacks for neighborhood students, free HIV testing, health information and more! We’d love to see you there! And the new Max Robinson Center is about three blocks away from the pavilion so you can see the exterior of the new building where we will be providing care and services for years to come!
We will continue to send updates as we get more information to share about the opening of the building. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Dwight Venson at email@example.com. He is our External Affairs and Community Coordinator and can help you navigate to the right place.
We hope your summer is off to a great start. Thanks for being part of the Whitman-Walker family!
