LeBron James Family Foundation to Open Up Medical Facility in His Hometown of Akron, Ohio

NBA superstar LeBron James says he is opening up a medical facility in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. The LeBron James Family Foundation announced plans on Tuesday for the I Promise HealthQuarters – a multimillion-dollar facility that will offer a variety of services to students from his I Promise School and local community.

“It takes a village to help raise a kid and make a true difference! Love my kids and their families!” the Los Angeles Lakers forward tweeted, as he shared news about the announcement.

The community health and wellness center will provide medical, dental, optometry and mental heath supports as well as on-site pharmacy and lab services, the foundation said. It is set to open in 2023 and it will be within walking distance from the I Promise School and across from House Three Thirty, a hub that helps with job training and financial literacy.

The medical facility is partnering with local health providers AxessPointe, Coleman Health Services and Peg’s Foundation. Michele Campbell, executive director of the LeBron James Family Foundation, told CBS News in a statement that their “work continues to expand in ways we never dreamed of.”
