The Children’s Home finalizes plans for health center
The Children’s Home of Cincinnati is pleased to announce the development of a primary care center, in partnership with the Cincinnati Health Department and with generous support from the Edward L. Levine Family Foundation. This project would not be possible without the Edward L. Levine Family Foundation. One of its directors, Megan Levine, stopped by The Children’s Home of Cincinnati this week to meet with Dr. Marilyn Crumpton, MD, MPH and John Banchy, President & CEO of The Children’s Home of Cincinnati. Dr. Crumpton currently serves as Medical Director in the Division of School & Adolescent Health at the Cincinnati Health Department. The trio reviewed blueprints and enthusiastically discussed the new opportunities presented by the health center.
“For over 150 years, The Children’s Home has focused on meeting the needs of vulnerable children and their families,” said John Banchy, President & CEO. “We are proud of our work in behavioral health and believe the addition of a health center is simply one more step in our efforts to transform children’s lives. Partnership is at the foundation of our efforts. I am humbled by the financial support of the Levine Family Foundation and our ongoing relationship with the Cincinnati Health Department.”
The health clinic is slated to open in August 2016, just in time for the upcoming school year. The Children’s Home of Cincinnati is eager to meet the needs of their current population and expand further into serving the community.
Incorporated in 1864, The Children’s Home of Cincinnati transforms the lives of vulnerable children by caring for their mental, physical and social well-being through education programs and treatment services.
