Medical Clinic Reopens at Martinez Elementary | Health
A medical clinic has reopened to help the students of Reynaldo Martinez Elementary School.
The United Way of Southern Nevada's Women's Leadership Council helped raise the money to reopen the clinic which did not have enough funds to open this year.
The group partnered with the local non-profit Positively Kids to run the clinic.
"The Reynaldo Martinez Elementary School Clinic did not have enough funds to open this year," said Nancy Reel, WLC Project Co-chair. "This left a huge void in this school community as it has served many, many families in the past."
It will provide much needed health care to more than 700 students at the elementary school, including many students who are homeless.
"It has been nice. If a kid shows up in the health office and we have a concern and the parents there and we need a quick answer or some help, we can call over and a doctor will come over and even see the kid at our school, if they need to," Martinez Elementary School Principal Tim Adams said.
The clinic was built in 2002.
