Hometown Health Centers' School-Based Health Centers Are Back in School!
Tuesday, Sept. 21, 2021 -- It’s September and that means our school-based health centers in the Schenectady City School District at Mont Pleasant Middle School and Schenectady High School are ready for another busy year!
Staffed by a family nurse practitioner who works under the supervision of a HHC-employed physician, school-based health centers provide medical care and treatment for students enrolled in the program with acute and chronic illness and disease. They also offer routine school or sports physicals; required immunizations; administration of medication; and screenings for vision, hearing, asthma, obesity, and other conditions without having to have a parent or guardian present. Additional services provided at the centers include reproductive healthcare, counseling, contraception, STD screening and ongoing education for high-risk activities such as smoking and substance abuse. Behavioral health screenings and referrals for evaluations to specialists are also available.
Students must be enrolled in the school-based health centers program to be seen at any of these schools. To enroll your student or learn more, click here.
