Video: MetroHealth Welcomes Back Lincoln-West Scholars

On Monday, September 12, MetroHealth welcomed students back to main campus for the first day of classes at the Lincoln-West School of Science and Health – the only high school in the nation located inside a hospital. The school is a partnership between MetroHealth and the Cleveland Metropolitan School District.

It provides a unique experience for students, combining a traditional curriculum with interactive learning in a health care setting.

In particular, it was a special day for MetroHealth’s Candra Nakon, a medical team assistant, whose daughter is a junior at Lincoln-West!

Welcome back, scholars!
