A Safe and Caring Place for Youth Health Care
The Ironmen Health Center is located on the Mancelona Public Schools’ campus, just steps from the Middle School and a short walk from the High School. Appointments and walk-ins are available during most school days and throughout the summer months.
The Ironmen Health Center welcomes all individuals 10 – 21 years of age and their children for health care services. A sliding fee scale based on the students’ ability to pay will be used to determine fee for services. No student will be denied services if unable to pay.   The Ironmen Health Center will bill students’ health insurance policy (Medicaid, MI-Child, Healthy Kids, or private insurance) for services.

Focus on preventive care for children and teens
The choices students make about alcohol, drug, and tobacco use, eating and physical activity, and personal relationships stay with them the rest of their lives.   The Ironmen Health Center staff is devoted to promoting healthy choices for students.  
The Ironmen Health Center is a school-linked health facility of The Health Department of Northwest Michigan, in collaboration with Mancelona Public Schools located at the Mancelona Family Resource Center. Our mission is to offer students in Mancelona primary health care services with a focus on preventive health and reduction of risk behaviors, removing barriers to students’ academic success, and promoting health and fitness now and in the future. 
Parents/guardians must provide consent for their minor children for services at the Ironmen Health Center by completing, signing, and returning a Parent/Guardian Consent for Medical/Dental Services form. The only exceptions, according to Michigan law, are emergencies that threaten life or limb, substance abuse services, HIV counseling and testing, sexually transmitted infection treatment, and for minors 14 and older—mental health services. People who are age 18 or older, legally emancipated, legally married, under court order, in the presence of a law officer when parents cannot be promptly located and/or members of the US Armed Forces provide consent for themselves.
