Temporary Clinic Relocation Plans

In October 2019, Maxine Hall Health Center will temporarily relocate during construction to 1181 Golden Gate Ave., on the southeast corner of Webster Street and Golden Gate. Construction is expected to start in fall 2019. Dates and details are being finalized.

Maxine Hall Health Center is a primary care clinic at 1301 Pierce St. in the Western Addition that serves about 3,600 patients annually. The clinic has served the community for 50 years, providing family health care services like:

  • Regular check-ups
  • Prenatal care
  • Women’s health services
  • Short-term counseling
  • Access to resources for food/shelter/clothing/transportation
  • Nutrition education

More than 60 percent of patients reside in the clinic’s zip code, or adjoining neighborhoods. Almost half have been a patient at Maxine Hall Health Center for more than 6 years.

Capital Improvement Project Overview

Maxine Hall Health Center will soon undergo a $7 million renovation project and temporary relocation. In an 80 percent vote, San Francisco residents approved $20 million in improvements for several health centers in the San Francisco Health Network, as part of the 2016 Public Health & Safety Bond.

The updates at Maxine Hall will include:

  • Seismically safer building in case of an earthquake
  • Expand the clinic by moving to the 2nd floor to meet current patient needs
  • Add an elevator to the 2nd floor
  • Update existing ADA ramp
  • Add curb ramps for patients with disabilities
  • Upgrade fire life and safety systems
  • Provide excellent patient care through integrated primary care models

All dates are subject to change.

Temporary Relocation Plan

During the project, the clinic will temporarily relocate because of construction to manufactured trailers on the corner of Webster Street and Golden Gate Avenue on the Ella Hill Hutch Community Center site. SF Supervisor Vallie Brown made the announcement on Dec. 29. Read the announcement. The temporary move will allow us to continue to provide patient care with no interruptions and disturbances (such as noise, vibrations, space constraints) during construction.

The temporary relocation is estimated to be for 14 months. This page will be updated with new information about the project as it becomes available.

Westside Community Services also shares the clinic building. This is an independent community-based program that partners with the SFDPH. Westside will not be relocating for the project; it will continue to serve its patients at the current location and in a manufactured trailer in front of the building.

Sites previously under consideration for the temporary relocation:

Golden Gate and Steiner Mini Park is not being considered for the temporary relocation as of 11/2/2018. Read a statement from San Francisco City Supervisor Vallie Brown stating that the Golden Gate and Steiner Mini Park will not be used for the relocation.
