This coming fall, a pilot program
will launch at Heights High allowing high school students in-person access to MetroHealth medical professionals two days per month in a clinic located at the school. The program was designed to help eliminate barriers to receiving health care.
Ahead of the clinic’s opening, we ask that parents/caregivers, community members, students and staff take a survey that will help us develop a comprehensive needs assessment and utilize this new resource as efficiently as possible. The deadline to take the survey is Monday, May 13
. Your responses will remain completely anonymous.About the clinic:
Payments for individual services will be billed to the insurer and MetroHealth staff will assist those without insurance in applying for coverage.
The clinic will serve as a convenient option for students who currently have a primary care provider/pediatrician, as well as those who do not. It is not intended to replace a provider.
MetroHealth’s School Health Program has proven successful in 13 Cleveland Metropolitan high schools including John Adams, Lincoln-West and Garrett Morgan.
