State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) presented an Ohio House commendation honoring the new launch of a multi-year partnership to address social needs.  
 
Integrated healthcare delivery organization University Hospitals (UH) in Cleveland and social enterprise Health Leads  launched a multi-year strategy to improve patient health by addressing social needs. The initial phase of the partnership includes in-clinic social needs services in the pediatric and women’s health clinics at UH Rainbow Babies & Children's and MacDonald Women's Hospitals. These primary care clinics have grown significantly in the past decade and currently see more than 150 patients per day. Through Health Leads’ tools, technology and on-site direct services, the clinics are now equipped to connect patients to local resources – including food, utilities, transportation and insurance benefits – as a standard part of quality care.
 
“The partnership and launch of new services will benefit the lives of thousands of local individuals,” Rep. Anielski said.  “I am thrilled to see the providers take a proactive measure to be more effective for the patients and take into account all factors that affect the health of the individual, even non-medical, which makes a well-rounded, emotionally and physically, and healthy individual.”
