Fenway Health Announces Operational Changes

Front entrance of Fenway Health's 1340 Boylston Street Ansin Building

Fenway Health announces today that we have expanded our partnership with Community Care Cooperative, known as C3, to purchase shared services. We are also working with trusted community partners and funders, including the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, to identify new agencies to manage our housing, legal, and Youth on Fire public health programs.

C3 is a successful nonprofit, health center-governed Accountable Care Organization and Shared Services Organization. It was founded eight years ago by health centers to create ways for federally qualified health centers to collaborate at scale to strengthen primary care, improve financial performance, and advance racial justice. We are engaging with C3’s Shared Services to manage our Pharmacy, IT, Credentialing, and Data & Analytics departments.

Fenway Health is also making changes to the management of some of our wrap-around public health services provided by AIDS Action, which is our Public Health Division. At one time, it made sense for Fenway Health to offer services such as housing and legal support to people living with HIV. That is no longer the case. There are other mission-driven nonprofit organizations in Greater Boston with the expertise and infrastructure to provide those services more efficiently to people living with HIV.

Fenway Health remains committed to providing health care to people living with HIV, developing evidence-based interventions to improve HIV care outcomes, and conducting HIV prevention research.

We provide technical assistance to AIDS service organizations around the country on how to improve health outcomes for people living with HIV. Our current work is with organizations serving justice-involved individuals, individuals with substance use disorder, and LGBTQIA+ youth living with HIV. We also run a training program for clinical providers across the country on how to meet Black women’s HIV prevention care needs. Fenway Institute researchers lead cutting edge research into HIV and gonorrhea vaccines, pre-exposure prophylaxis for HIV prevention, Hepatitis A&B vaccine awareness, improving health outcomes for older people living with HIV, and HIV prevention with sex workers.

Our Public Health Division remains a central part of our services and we are committed to maintaining and expanding our Access Drug User Health Program, Sexual Health program, public health HIV/STI counseling and testing, and community health outreach by connecting people with care and supporting health navigation.

By making these changes, we can focus on our core expertise, which is providing LGBTQIA+-affirming healthcare and healthcare-related services to our community. As we continue to adapt to a post-pandemic healthcare environment that is challenging the industry in Boston, in Massachusetts, and across the country, these operational changes will ensure our independence and long-term financial health.


Founded in 1971, Fenway Health advocates for and delivers innovative, equitable, accessible health care, supportive services, and transformative research and education. We center LGBTQIA+ people, BIPOC individuals, and other underserved communities to enable our local, national, and global neighbors to flourish.
