Cleveland Clinic Lakewood Family Health Center Unveils New Lakewood City Schools Art Banners

Cleveland Clinic Lakewood hosted a special event for Lakewood City Schools’ students and their family members to unveil four banners featuring 50 pieces of artwork from Lakewood City School students. The banners will be displayed during construction of the new Lakewood Family Health Center, which is set to open in summer 2018.

“We are excited to be able to incorporate the Lakewood City School District into the Lakewood Family Health Center’s mission in such a creative way,” said James Hekman, M.D., medical director of the Lakewood Family Health Center. “The banners represent our ongoing commitment to being present in Lakewood and among the community we care for every day.”

The students’ artwork is featured on four banners and will be on display along the construction fences (corner of Belle and Detroit avenues) where the new Cleveland Clinic Lakewood Family Health Center is currently under construction.

“We are proud and pleased to be able to share with the community through these beautiful banners the artistic talent of our students from kindergarten through our seniors,” said Jeff Patterson, superintendent of Lakewood City Schools. “We hope it adds a bright spot in front of the construction site until the new Family Health Center is complete.”

Cleveland Clinic broke ground on April 4, 2017, for the new Lakewood Family Health Center. Located at 14601 Detroit Ave., the Lakewood Family Health Center will be a 62,000 square-foot facility that offers specialty care, family medicine, imaging, chronic disease management, a center for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) care, and feature a new state-of-the-art emergency department.
