Cincinnati, OH – Tuesday, September 6, 2016 – The Children’s Home of Cincinnati, along with the Cincinnati Health Department, Cincinnati Public Schools, Interact for Health and Growing Well today announced the opening of a new school-based health center (SBHC) located on the campus of The Children’s Home of Cincinnati. The Levine Family Health Center is a full service Cincinnati Health Department primary care center, serving the medical needs of children and families in the school and community.

Leaders at The Children’s Home of Cincinnati have a commitment to serving the whole child and know that mental health and physical health are fundamentally linked. The Levine Family Health Center will provide primary care and be a key strategy to eliminating barriers to care for children and families at The Children’s Home as well as the surrounding community. The Cincinnati Health Department is providing staff that includes a nurse practitioner, medical assistant, part-time RN, and part-time physician. Through this service, children and their families have access to physicals, asthma management, immunizations, lab tests, prescription medications, sick and injury care, and health education. In addition to children and youth attending programs at The Children’s Home, the Health Center is also available to Shroder High School students, John P. Parker Elementary School students, families and others in the community who need service.

“Twelve months ago, the Levine Family Health Center was a vision,” said John Banchy, President & CEO of The Children’s Home of Cincinnati. “Today, it is a state-of-the-art health center thanks to the help and support of our partners. I am grateful for our partnership with the Cincinnati Health Department, Cincinnati Public Schools, our donors and the community.”

The Levine Family Health Center is named for the primary donor, Edward Levine, former CEO of Champion Window. Other major donors include the Heidt Family Foundation and Interact for Health.

“Interact for Health is focused on building healthy communities for all people,” said Francie Wolgin, senior program officer of School Aged Children’s Health at Interact for Health. “Through these centers, we’re providing access to quality services so students are healthy enough to achieve at their fullest potential.”

This is the 23rd school-based health center within Cincinnati Public Schools, and the 13th that is operated by the Cincinnati Health Department in consultation with Growing Well. The Levine Family Health Center anticipates serving approximately 1,000 children and families in its first year. “We know that the academic success of America’s youth is strongly linked with their health,” said Mary Ronan, Superintendent of Cincinnati Public Schools. “We are thrilled with the opening of the Levine Family Health Center as it gives our students access to healthcare that they might otherwise not be able to obtain.”
