If you have not signed up your child for the School Based Health Center (SBHCs), we encourage you to do so!
The Health Center comes as no cost to you!
SBHCs have been providing on-site primary care to students for over 25 years. SBHCs are like a doctor’s office within a school and provide a great benefit to students. Research shows that SBHCs can help a student manage his/her illness at school and, therefore, decrease absenteeism from school and parents’ time away from work as well as fewer hospitalizations and trips to the emergency room. A student that is healthy and shows up to class is better equipped for academic success.
The SBHCs are staffed by a multi-disciplinary team, which include a nurse practitioner/physician assistant, physician, mental health professional, social worker, medical assistant, and health aide.
The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) oversees the performance of all SBHCs to assure that they are providing high-quality care.
