Project Term: 12 months; Ended 2018
Grant Amount: $75,000
Through this project, the Lockwood School District worked with St. Vincent Healthcare to plan for and begin delivering health services to the community of Lockwood through the establishment of a mobile clinic. This mobile clinic, donated by the Ronald McDonald Foundation, began providing primary care services to students and the community members of Lockwood in July 2018. This is the first primary health care facility in the unincorporated city of approximately 8,000 residents. The Lockwood School District is continuing to partner with St. Vincent and will expand their scope of services to include behavioral health services in the next 24 months. The construction of a permanent clinic, operated by St. Vincent, is being included in the construction plans for the construction of the Lockwood High School.
