The board of directors of the Harvard Street Neighborhood Health Center is pleased to announce former State Representative Charley Murphy, as their new president and CEO. In this role, he will oversee all aspects of the Dorchester-based health center, which provides services, ranging from primary care to preventative medicine and health education, predominantly to the families of North Dorchester, Roxbury and Mattapan.
Murphy brings years of government and strategic experience from his time on Beacon Hill and the private sector. A graduate of Villanova University, Vermont Law School and the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, Murphy is also a former captain in the United States Marine Corps. He served as chairman of the House Committee on Ways and Means from 2009 to 2011. He most recently served on the senior management team at Arcadia Solutions, a health-care data analytics firm, as vice president of public policy and government affairs.
“I am humbled to have been selected to take the helm at Harvard Street, whose mission is critical to the wellbeing of countless underserved families here in Boston.” Murphy said. “I intend to work with the team here every day to provide the best possible care to the people of Dorchester, Roxbury and Mattapan.”
Serving a diverse and primarily low-income constituency, Harvard Street’s mission is to serve as a primary health care provider regardless of ability to pay.
