June 19, 2008 — Officials from Overland Park, Kan., and the greater Kansas City area gathered June 11 at Cleveland Chiropractic College for a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house at the educational institution’s public health center.
Overland Park Mayor Carl Gerlach and other local dignitaries joined Drs. Carl S. Cleveland III, president, and Jeffrey Miller, health center director, as they officially opened the facility, which is the cornerstone of the college’s new 34-acre campus.
In the college’s new healthcare facility, interns provide chiropractic care and other services under the supervision of licensed DCs. Cleveland also maintains a health center in the Brookside area of Kansas City, Mo. That facility received more than 40,000 patient visits last year. In addition to the health centers, interns have the opportunity to treat other patients as part of the college’s interdisciplinary partnerships with Truman Medical Center-Lakewood, the Kansas City Veterans Administration Hospital and the Kansas City Free Health Clinic.
The formal campus dedication for the entire educational complex will take place Oct. 10 in conjunction with the college’s annual homecoming festivities.
