WARREN, Ohio – Trumbull Career & Technical Center has partnered with QuickMed Urgent Care to open an on-campus health and wellness clinic.
Starting this month, TCTC students can be referred to the clinic by school nurses for basic care at no cost to families or students. The Ohio Department of Education’s Student Welfare and Success Fund pays for the clinic.
“We believe this is a meaningful way to leverage state funds,” TCTC program supervisor and acting director Paula Baco said in a statement. “The clinic will play a key role in meeting the healthcare needs of our students, keeping them in school for assessment and improving their overall well-being.
In cases where outside testing is required or for services requiring billing from a family’s insurer, parents or guardians will receive notification before the clinic proceeds.
TCTC Clinic’s QuickMed provider is Jeff Branham, Certified Nurse Practitioner. The clinic is open weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The partnership follows a similar program run by QuickMed at Chaney and East High Schools in the city of Youngstown.
