- The Health Center provides quality medical care to students, as well as referrals for services The Health Center is not able to provide. All services are provided by licensed medical and mental health providers.
- If a student needs a service that The Health Center cannot provide (i.e. food, housing, substance abuse, and dental) our staff will do their best to help the student find and access that necessary service.
We have a team of doctors, nurse practitioners, and registered nurses on duty to provide students with clinical support. Unlike the school nurse, The Health Center can treat chronic illness, perform lab tests, prescribe and dispense medication and offer physical exams.
Absolutely. We can also provide other Washington State recommended childhood vaccinations, as needed.
No, dental services are not available at The Health Center. Students are referred to dentists in the Walla Walla community for services.
Only students who go to the school where the clinic is located can use services. However, we do invite parental involvement in every aspect of the student’s care.
No, The Health Center will not replace your doctor. We will work with you and your child’s doctor to provide medical care for your child when he or she is in school. We can also help arrange appointments for your child to see his or her doctor.
A Release of Information (ROI) must be signed by the child (if they’re over 14 years old) or a parent or guardian in order for us to release any medical information to the school or to outside medical facilities. ROI forms are available in the packet sent home with your student and at The Health Center.
Yes, in order to see a student, we need a parent permission form filled out for each child. Forms are available in the packet sent home with your student, and at The Health Center, and in the front office at the school.
All of the services provided at the Health Center are free of charge.
