The Family Health and Birth Center welcomes you to your new health home!
The Family Health and Birth Center is moving to 2120 Bladensburg Road on March 30. We are excited about this move and the opportunities our new location will bring to our dedicated team and patients. Our new space is over doubled in size – allowing us to grow with our patient community.
- Provides more access to medical care
- Provides more access to emotional wellness support
- Adds access to a pharmacy (Coming soon!)
Note: There will be no patients seen at the 17th Street location after March 23rd. If you need care between March 24 to March 30, please call our health services line at 202.540.9857. Our care staff will be helpful in providing you with next steps based on your individual needs including the possibility of scheduling a telehealth appointment or service at another Community of Hope health center. For our pregnant patients, please follow normal steps and call 202-540-9857 and press option 5.
The new space is designed for team-based care and is beautiful and comfortable. We are also adding providers and services to make your visit an even better experience.
This move means we will be advancing our services and adding more providers to make your health center visit an even better experience!
Our new facility is only 1 ½ miles away from the current location and will give us the capacity to offer so much more to families in DC! With accessibility at the height of our concerns, the new Family Health and Birth Center location is along bus lines B2 and D4. Parking is also available on site. There is a parking lot for patients on the north side of the building, accessible from 24th Street.

Community of Hope searched long and hard to find a new health center in Ward 5 and we designed this beautiful facility allowing us to expand to meet the vital health care access needs in the community while being accessible for neighbors across the eastern side of the city. Expanding access to medical care is a key priority but the Family Health and Birth Center is also the only free-standing birth center in DC and the only facility east of Capitol Street where expectant parents may give birth to their baby.
We are excited to expand our services for families.
It has been an honor to watch the Family Health and Birth Center grow and take root in the Carver-Langston community since 2011. In order to continue to serve our community, it is a need to offer more space and more support. Our expanded facility will allow us to care for more families, provided expanded emotional wellness, and continue a holistic approach to care.
It is good timing that we can expand because the current building owners at 17th Street have sold the site and it will be developed into housing. So, instead of closing our doors—we're moving them!
In this move, we think about the countless triumph stories, baby giggles, and community support to be experienced in the new center. This new facility is funded by the donations of those committed to this community and our collective vision.
