School-based health centers (SBHCs) deliver quality, affordable, cost-effective health care to young people as a doctor’s office located on school grounds. We offer a range of medical, dental and behavioral health services, which keep kids healthier, in school, and ready to learn.
Our SBHC staff share a developmental approach to pediatric and adolescent health, respecting the age, cultural values and family life of every student.
Why School Based Health Centers:
• Provide quality, comprehensive health care services that help students succeed in school and in life
• Located in or near a school facility and open during school hours
• Organized through school, community, and health provider relationships
• Staffed by qualified health care professionals
