As part of a collaboration with the National School-Based Health Alliance, the MetroHealth School Health Program provides annual quality data to the School Health Services National Quality Initiative. Using comparative data, the MetroHealth School Health Program exceeds national and state benchmarks for preventive services completion, including adolescent preventive visit and immunization completion.
Urban has partnered with The MetroHealth System to establish a community and school-based health clinic on our campus. The partnership gives UCS children and their families, as well as UCS faculty, staff, and their families, better access to healthcare resources, serving the “whole person.” Not only are these services and resources be available for UCS, but for the surrounding community as well.
Beginning in 2019, MetroHealth will operate our school clinic located during school hours. Services provided throughout the school day will include immunizations, screenings, same-day sick care appointments, and primary and behavioral health care with services for children impacted by trauma.
In addition to these healthcare services, the clinic will also house a legal aide clinic, a WIC office that will provide services to our families, a Cleveland Food Bank food pharmacy for families who need prescriptions for healthy food, a Reach Out & Read program that will provide books for families to take home and help moms learn to read with their kids, and a 2-1-1 office managed by United Way of Greater Cleveland. The facility will become a one-stop shop for our families, giving them many of the services they need in one place.
At the Cletus Jeckering Health Center at UCS, services that are provided include: family medicine, pediatric care, OBGYN, behavioral health, and nutrition services. The clinic will also include a full-translation clinic for the Hispanic community and a new service, MetroExpressCare, offering non-emergency room treatment for urgent health issues. Our children and families will have direct access to these resources, making it possible to better serve those most in need.
