The partnership provides a Mobile Healthcare Unit that visits area schools at designated days and times. The collaborative effort exemplifies the shared goals of both Curtis V Cooper Primary Health and SCCPSS to ensure every child and family’s well-being. Greater collaboration and a stronger infusion of community services for the students and families of the school district is an area of focus for Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Ann Levett. “We’re committed to the growth of the whole child, as we know that healthy, happy students perform better in school,” she said. “Being able to grow our partnerships and directly connect resources to our families is beneficial to all involved and we can’t thank enough the leadership of Curtis V. Cooper for their dedicated support of our mission.”
Albert Grandy, Curtis V. Cooper Chief Executive Officer stated, “We look forward to expanding access to needed health services for our community. Most safety net health providers believe SCCPSS is the primary genesis and we expect this partnership to galvanize our community. I would be remiss without acknowledging Dr. Levett’s foresight and the SCCPSS’s support to engage in this partnership.”
Curtis V. Cooper Primary Health Care, Inc. is a non-profit community health center, funded federally and locally to serve citizens of the Savannah-Chatham County area. Services date back to 1971, when Dr. Curtis V. Cooper organized a group of citizens from the west side of Savannah for the sole purpose of funding a primary health care center to serve the uninsured and under-served. Today, there are seven delivery sites and approximately 150 staff members, including 30 healthcare providers serving over 19,000 patients. Services include primary care, prenatal, podiatry, radiology, pharmacy, dentistry, behavioral health, patient assistance, outreach, enrollment and more.
Now, with a Mobile Health Services Unit, health care services will have greater reach for the families of the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System!
