Confidential medical services for students
At School Based Health Centers (SBHCs), students receive confidential medical services in their schools. Each SBHC is staffed by a qualified medical professional and focuses on preventing illness and promoting healthy behaviors. Benefits of SBHCs include the following:
- improve access to quality physical, mental and preventive health services
- care for children and adolescents regardless of their ability to pay
- reduce high costs associated with inappropriate use of emergency rooms and unnecessary hospitalizations
- ensure services are age appropriate
- save parents time by reducing missed work hours
- keep students in class and ready to learn
Our services include:
- diagnosing and treating injury and illness
- comprehensive physical exams
- well child checks
- screenings (blood pressure and vision)
- laboratory tests
- mental or emotional health services
- referrals to specialty services as needed
No student is denied services. Insurance is billed whenever possible; however, students and families are not charged for services.
