Downtown WIC clinic moving, new clinic opens November 23 at Warner Center

 

November 17, 2020



The Downtown WIC Clinic will be moving to a new location later this month. The new address is 332 Fifth Avenue, Warner Center 5th floor, Pittsburgh, PA 15222.

Current Downtown WIC participants will begin to use this new location beginning on November 23, 2020. The current location will physically close on November 20 but staff will still have the ability to conduct telephone appointments with participants.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, all WIC appointments are being conducted over the telephone. If a participant at the downtown clinic needs to load their benefits in person while the office is moving, they should call for instructions.

The phone number and fax number for the new Downtown WIC clinic location will remain the same, 412-350-7240 (phone) and 421-350-6184 (fax) and will remain operational during the move.
