Friend Health opens $43 million headquarters and medical clinic in Woodlawn. After 25 years in Hyde Park, Friend Health is opening its new headquarters and flagship medical clinic in Woodlawn. Located at the corner of Cottage Grove Avenue and 63rd Street, Friend Health’s new facility is expected to alleviate the area’s severe shortage of healthcare providers when it officially opens in late-July. During the facility’s July 8 ribbon-cutting, Friend Health CEO Verneda Bachus said the $43 million clinic will provide comprehensive primary care: family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, internal medicine, pediatrics and a pharmacy. Mammograms and ultrasounds will start being offered, as will a same-day-need clinic.
