LeBron James to Build Multimillion Dollar Medical Facility to Serve His Hometown of Akron

LeBron James is adding to his already incredible legacy with his latest venture, opening the I Promise HealthQuarters, a multimillion-dollar medical facility in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, in 2023.

“When our families expressed a need for more health care services…we went to work,” LJFF posted on Instagram. “Today, we’ve come together with 3 organizations, axesspointe, colemanservices, & Peg’s Foundation to create I Promise HealthQuarters to offer a variety of services ALL under one roof.”

James has kept his promise to give back as his star has risen exponentially over the years from a breakout high school basketball player at St. Vincent – St. Mary’s High School in Akron. He is creating a veritable one-stop for his community, becoming the change we all seek in underserved environments.

Health x Care

“As we continue to listen and respond to what our families need, our work continues to expand in ways we never dreamed of,” executive director of LJFF Michele Campbell said to Complex.

“Access to affordable health care has always been a critical need for our families – and further heightened by the pandemic – so we began rallying our community to bring the experts together under one trusted roof. Being able to provide this important resource for the entire community is only possible because we have incredible partners that share our We Are Family philosophy.”

James is making history daily as Forbes announced him as the first-ever actively playing NBA billionaire a few days ago. The valuation was based on his numerous investments in media, restaurants, and more; his basketball ability has been the catalyst for many opportunities that have seen his close friends all become successful with him.
