  • School Based Health Centers

Healthcare in the School

School-based health centers are more than just a school nurse. They are a comprehensive approach to caring for our students. If children are healthy, they will learn more, stay in school and cut down on absentee rates. It is a holistic concept aimed at educating our students.

In this economy, there are critical gaps in access to health care for many families. With soaring health care costs, school-based health centers have become a valuable community resource. Community Health of South Florida Inc.’s school-based health centers have efficient and cost-effective services that bridge the gap, keeping our children strong, healthy and ready to learn.

With the recent outbreaks of tragic violence in our nation’s schools, mental health is now finally being recognized as a major need that communities have to address in order to keep our children safe.

Community Health of South Florida Inc. (CHI) has a team of health care professionals tending to each issue affecting children at its 36 school-based health centers.

Four of the 36 school-based health care centers are on the cutting edge of technology with telemedicine units installed for doctors at another location to virtually see a student via the computer, diagnose and even prescribe medications.

Services that are beyond the scope of the school-based health centers are referred out to other CHI health centers equipped with a wide array of services including radiology, pharmacy and much more, all under one roof.
