SCHOOL BASED HEALTH CENTERS

Our School Based Health Center (SBHC) partnership with the Scranton School District aims to improve the health, wellness and academic performance of students by removing their barriers to learning. Our SBHC provides easy access to immediate, quality healthcare in a safe and convenient setting. Parents are notified before students are seen and as a safety-net provider, we provide care regardless of ability to pay. Parents do not need to be present for visits, but are encouraged to attend when possible. Our team will coordinate care with your child’s Pediatrician and if your child does not have a Pediatrician, we can gladly step into that role.

How does our staff partner with school staff? School nurses, counselors, special educators, teachers and administrators can help identify students who can benefit from our services and refer them to our primary care or mental health services. This creates a community connection between the staff and our Health Center.
