North Coast Health Ministry Expands Hours To Monday Evenings
North Coast Health Ministry (NCHM), a free clinic serving the low-income uninsured in western Greater Cleveland, has begun offering primary care clinics on Monday evenings at its Lakewood location. The Monday evening clinic is being offered in addition to primary care clinics held during daytime hours Monday through Friday
“It is our hope that our expanded hours will better serve patients who work during the day,” says Executive Director Lee Elmore. “Now uninsured individuals who would have no alternative route to care during the evening will have a place to come for primary care. Individuals who would otherwise use the emergency room after hours for non-emergent needs can come to NCHM and be taken care of in the most appropriate setting.”
North Coast Health Ministry’s Monday evening clinic is by appointment only and takes place at 16110 Detroit Avenue, Lakewood, Ohio. To become a NCHM patient, call 216-228-7878 to begin the registration process.
