The Chelsea Sexual Health Clinic reopened this month after $26.3 million overhaul that closed the popular center for three years. The health center, located at 303 Ninth Ave., closed its doors in March 2015 in dire need of repairs. City officials reopened the clinic on March 15, after much of the building, which was first constructed in the 1930s, had been gutted and newly renovated. The clinic is reopening as the city continues to work toward its goal to end the spread of HIV by 2020, and as reports of other sexually transmitted infections, like chlamydia and gonorrhea, continue to increase.
