James Garrow, a spokesman for the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, said the city is still in the early stages of planning for the new center. It would be in addition to the city-operated Health Center 10 at 2230 Cottman Ave.
“We’re excited to start this process, and we acknowledge that it will be a long process,” Garrow said in an email. “As we work out the details, we’ll have a better understanding of a timeline and potential location, aside from it being placed in the lower Northeast.”
