MARATHON — Florida Keys Area Health Education Center, a nonprofit based in Marathon, is offering full-service medical care for students and current patients.

Clinic locations include the following schools: Key Largo, Coral Shores High, Marathon Middle/High, Sugarloaf, Gerald Adams Elementary, Horace O’Bryant and Key West High, for two to three weekdays at each site. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Clinics will not offer COVID-19 testing at this time. Each patient who seeks care at one of the clinics will also be assessed prior to entering the clinic. Those who assess at risk of COVID-19 will be referred for testing at a local site.

Each clinic location has a phone to contact the provider inside.

“We do this to provide the highest quality care and to protect all of us during this time,” said CEO Michael Cunningham.

General questions can be directed to 305-743-7111, ext. 210.
