On May 28, in the midst of Minneapolis protests and social upheaval, the Broadway Family Medicine Clinic, located at West Broadway Avenue and Emerson Avenue West, suffered severe damage. From broken windows to the loss of computers and televisions, the clinic required significant cleanup and repair in the following days. Committed to patient care and the community, clinic staff worked quickly to ensure any scheduled in-person visits were converted to virtual appointments.
The staff and faculty at the Broadway Family Medicine Clinic did not allow the damage to the clinic to discourage their fierce dedication to the community. They quickly began serving patients in the parking lot, organizing supply drives and raising money for the community.
A clinic with a long history of serving its community
The Broadway Family Medicine Clinic has been located at its current site for 20 years and has been a fixture in the neighborhood since the early 1970s. The clinic is the training site for the North Memorial Residency Program, one of seven residency training programs within the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health.
How you can help
In March of 2020, the University of Minnesota Physicians announced the relocation of the Broadway Family Medicine Clinic. The clinic will continue its mission to serve and provide care to North Minneapolis at the new space, located at the northeast corner of Broadway and 26th Avenues (in the Jordan neighborhood). The new clinic will open in early 2021.
Philanthropy to the new clinic will help to provide clinic enhancements such as artwork from neighborhood artists, programmatic activity to service the community's needs, and updates to technology and equipment.
Clinic leadership has requested that those who are interested in making a gift to the clinic and its faculty may direct their donation to the Broadway Clinic Capital and Expansion fund. Donations are tax-deductible.
Thank you for your consideration in making a gift to the clinic's relocation fund!
