The mission of Washington University Medical Center Redevelopment Corporation (WUMCRC) is to promote safe and sustainable neighborhoods surrounding the Washington University Medical Center campus that are complementary to the continued growth and investment of the medical center.

WUMCRC is a partnership between BJC Health Care and the Washington University School of Medicine and works to improve the quality of life for the neighborhoods surrounding the medical campus. In order to achieve this goal in Forest Park Southeast and the Central West End, WUMCRC has invested millions of dollars toward regenerating the market for private investment in businesses and real estate, enhancing human and social service opportunities, and improving the level of physical and personal security.

WUMCRC fosters public-private partnerships to strengthen the Forest Park Southeast and Central West End neighborhoods by facilitating measures to improve security, promoting the development of diverse housing options, enhancing the lives of residents by implementing human and social service initiatives, and enriching neighborhoods with infrastructure upgrades and beautification measures. Security, housing, social service provision and physical infrastructure allow for the cultivation of economic development to ensure the long-term vitality of the Central West End and Forest Park Southeast neighborhoods.

WUMCRC has made significant progress in revitalizing both the Central West End and Forest Park Southeast over the last 35 years. Despite this advancement, these neighborhoods will continue to face challenges in the future. WUMCRC will use the momentum that was created to counter these challenges while compelling further neighborhood revitalization. This renewal will continue to enhance the Washington University Medical Center, the BJC Healthcare complex, and surrounding residents and businesses.
