MetroHealth Mound STEM School Clinic
The School Health Program was developed to bring MetroHealth primary care to children who are at risk of not receiving care due to lack of access. With parent/guardian consent, MetroHealth medical professionals care for children at school during school hours.
In addition to primary and preventive health care including routine check-ups and immunizations, the MetroHealth program will help manage chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes, and offer referrals for additional services including behavioral health. MetroHealth plans to expand the centers to as many as 20 CMSD schools in the next two years.
The program is designed to take medicine back to the people - meeting them where they are rather than having them navigate through a big medical system.
MetroHealth’s School Health Program is currently funded by generous gifts from individuals and: ArcelorMittal, The Callahan Foundation, CVS/Caremark Charitable Trust, The Cleveland Foundation, Eaton Corporation Charitable Fund, The Ginn Foundation, The George Gund Foundation, The Higley Fund, The Medical Mutual of Ohio Charitable Fund, The Nathan and Fannye Shafran Foundation, Third Federal Foundation, United Way of Greater Cleveland and Verizon Foundation.
