Massachusetts health clinics receive $80 million boost

Boston Globe, December 10, 2009

Interviews with the presidents of Boston community health centers suggest the projects will generate hundreds of construction jobs as well as hundreds of new permanent clinic jobs for doctors, nurses, and other medical workers, the Boston Globe reports.
