Partners Healthcare To Move Charlestown Jobs to Somerville But Not Just Now

Back room operations will remain in Charlestown until 2016.

When Partners Healthcare announced Thursday, Dec. 5, a plan to consolidate their entire administrative operation in a single site, it appeared workers at the health care's Schrafft Center operation would be packing up their holiday decorations for a long trip to their new "home."

But the news last week wasn't so bad for both employees and the stores and eateries that currently served them; The new office is five minutes from where they are today and they will be hanging up Christmas stockings in their Charlestown offices on Main Street for at least the next two years. 

The announcement made in a memo released Thursday stated the medical giant – founded in 1994 by Brigham and Women's Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital – was consolidating 14 back room offices in far-flung locations such as Wellesley and Needham to the new Assembly Row mixed-use development in Somerville, according to WBUR. 

But they will be staying around until 2016 when the new location opens for business with a new MBTA Orange Line subway stop literally at the front door of the new operations site.
