Overview

Learn about Cleveland Clinic Childrens mobile unit.

Cleveland Clinic Children’s School-Based Health Center is a mobile, full-service pediatric office staffed with our healthcare professionals. This mobile unit will visit your child’s school to provide care regularly throughout the school year as a partnership between your school district and Cleveland Clinic Children’s.

Cleveland Clinic Children’s mobile health center provides voluntary, comprehensive healthcare services to students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Children who are healthy are best equipped to learn and excel in the classroom. Cleveland Clinic Children’s is committed to ensuring that all students receive high-quality, comprehensive healthcare with the added convenience of being at the school where students spend most of their days. Cleveland Clinic Children’s School-Based Health Center can work with your existing healthcare provider in caring for your child. If your child has no primary health care provider, the School-Based Health Center staff may become that provider. If your child needs care when school is closed, you may decide to go to area Cleveland Clinic Children’s locations.
