North Coast Health Ministry has expanded its clinic hours to add two or three nights per week and Saturday mornings for patient visits.
These expanded hours are in addition to care offered to the low-income uninsured five days per week from Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The evening schedule varies each week. All visits are by appointment only. The clinic is located at 16110 Detroit Avenue, Lakewood, Ohio.
“It’s a fact that most people who are low-income and uninsured hold down jobs that often don’t offer much flexibility,” says NCHM Executive Director Lee Elmore. “Getting to the doctor during business hours is often difficult for them. Our expanded hours will help more individuals in need access our health care services.”
To schedule an appointment or to become a patient, call 216-228-7878 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. For income eligibility guidelines, go to: http://www.nchealthministry.org/patient-application.
NCHM’s extended hours are made possible through a grant from the Mt. Sinai Health Care Foundation.
