Stephanie Tubbs Jones Health Center Opens in East Cleveland
Reaching beyond traditional healthcare services, the recently opened Cleveland Clinic Stephanie Tubbs Jones Health Center, located in East Cleveland, is making it easier for patients and their families to get the care they need.
Named after Ms. Tubbs Jones, the congresswoman, judge and prosecutor who devoted her career to public service before her death in 2008, the center establishes a new model of outpatient care that links healthcare with social and financial services.
The Stephanie Tubbs Jones Health Center offers a variety of outpatient services, including primary and specialty care, specialized care for women and children, and mental health services, as well as prevention, wellness and health education programs. The new center places a strong emphasis on chronic disease management with a focus on diabetes, hypertension and kidney failure. The center also will focus on preventive care and chronic disease management, which are critical needs in East Cleveland and the surrounding area.
“Stephanie Tubbs Jones was a dedicated public servant who worked to improve the city of East Cleveland and Northeast Ohio,” says Delos M. Cosgrove, MD, President and CEO of Cleveland Clinic. “She knew the importance of healthcare and worked to achieve improved access for the underserved. We believe it’s important to continue to recognize her accomplishments and continue her mission of providing the right care for this community.”
