Entry Title Date
Recognizing The 50Th Anniversary Of The Nation’S First Community Health Center October 8, 2015
Stephen Lynch, D-MA
"In the 8th Congressional District of Massachusetts we are particularly proud because the nation’s first community health center opened in December 1965 on Columbia Point in Boston’s Dorchester neighborhood. Drs. Jack Geiger and Count Gibson of Tufts Medical School founded the Columbia Point Health Center in order to meet the needs of the residents of an isolated public housing project, cut off from the City’s health resources. Drs. Geiger and Gibson opened a rural center shortly thereafter in the Delta region of Mississippi. From that start, the community health center program expanded throughout the country. In 1985, Columbia Point Health Center joined with the Neponset Health Center to form Harbor Health Services, Inc. And in 1990, the Columbia Point Health Center moved into a new building and was renamed Geiger Gibson Community Health Center in honor of the founders of the national movement."
