Metro Center Marks its 25th Year Providing Community Care

Congressman Charlie Crist (D-St. Petersburg) visits Metro Wellness and Community Centers’ St. Petersburg facility on Monday, May 22, to learn more about Metro’s expansion and discuss how legislation impacting the Affordable Care Act will affect the local LGBTQ community. Recent increases in HIV infections make Crist’s visit even more timely.

Metro Wellness is in its 25th year of providing health services and recently marked a significant milestone with the purchase of its large St Petersburg building, solidifying METRO’s position as an anchor for residents and the greater community. It comes at a time when both Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties are facing an HIV crisis and a rise in infections, making METRO’s HIV education, testing and treatment services all the more essential.

Phase 1 of construction on Metro’s St Pete Medical Center and Community Center remodel continues with electrical work, renovations to the roof, air conditioning and windows.

Metro serves approximately 14,000 clients in the Pinellas/Tampa Bay region and is known for comprehensive HIV services, LGBTQ+ focused Primary Care and community programming.
