Heath Street (announced as Heath Street/VA Medical Center) is a tram stop and terminus of the MBTA Green Line "E" Branch, located at the intersection of South Huntington Avenue and Heath Street on the border between the Mission Hill and Jamaica Plain neighborhood line of Boston, Massachusetts. The station is accessible when served by the MBTA's newer low-floor trolley cars and buses.
Heath Street was originally a minor turnback for the Arborway Line. In the late 70s, two waiting shelters with signage were built. After four years of rebuilding, "E" Branch service resumed to Heath Street (but not to Arborway on November 4, 1989. It has served as the line's terminus since.
The shelter across the street from the Heath Street terminal was demolished in the 2000s, but the one inside the loop remains. The shelter is also used as an office for MBTA employees.
