LeBron James is giving back to his hometown of Akron, Ohio and will open up a medical facility to better serve the community.
On Tuesday (June 7) an official Instagram post by the LeBron James Family Foundation announced that the multimillion-dollar facility, I Promise HealthQuarters, will be available to provide services to students who attend his I Promise School and the neighboring areas.
“When our families expressed a need for more health care services... we went to work,” IG caption revealed, sharing the news. “We've come together with three organizations, AxessPointe, Coleman Services, [and] Peg’s Foundation to create I Promise HealthQuarters to offer a variety of services ALL under one roof.”
The HealthQuarters will offer medical, dental, optometry, mental health, pharmaceutical and lab services.
“Access to affordable health care has always been a critical need for our families – and further heightened by the pandemic – so we began rallying our community to bring the experts together under one trusted roof,” Michele Campbell, executive director of the LeBron James Family Foundation shared with CBS News in an official statement. "Being able to provide this important resource for the entire community is only possible because we have incredible partners that share our We Are Family philosophy."
Currently, doors will open in 2023 and will be within walking distance from the I Promise School and across the street from House Three Thirty, a center that assists in job training and financial literacy.
