Starting Tuesday, Nov. 17, NEOMED will provide campus-based, physician-delivered primary care services for students. This will be the first time that such a complement of services has been offered at the University.
Students will be able to visit the student health services offices in Suite 203 of the NEW Center for anything from acute symptom management – say, a sore throat or a bad headache – to COVID-19 symptom assessments. Chronic disease management will also be offered. Students will be able to receive care in person or through virtual visits.
“We are pleased to be able to make this primary care available, along with continuing to provide student mental health services through the Center for Student Wellness & Counseling. Offering these services will help our students stay healthy and well, and will contribute to an exceptional student experience,” said President Langell.
The student health services are being launched as one component of Clinical Services, LLC, a NEOMED- affiliated company. In early 2021, the company will make additional clinical services available through physicians housed in the new Medical Office Building. More information about the additional services will be available and shared in the upcoming weeks and months.
Mary Massie-Story, M.D., who joined the Department of Family and Community Medicine as associate director of the integrated pathways program in fall 2020, will be the first among several physicians providing clinical services. A clinical assistant professor of family and community medicine, Dr. Massie-Story is also an Academic Medicine Fellow of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
Dr. Massie-Story earned her medical degree at Case Western Reserve University and has been a family medicine physician at MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland since 1999.
Providing primary care for students only, Dr. Massie-Story will be available on site and remotely from 1-5 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays and from 8 a.m.-noon on Fridays. Practice hours are projected to be expanded in 2021.
Students may schedule appointments by visiting Appointments Plus or calling 330.325.3202.
