School Based Health Centers

What is a Bassett Healthcare School Based Health Center (SBHC) ?

A Bassett Healthcare SBHC is a medical office in the school building, in partnership between a school district and the Mary Imogene Bassett Hospital. A SBHC provides comprehensive health care services to students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade atthe school. It can work with your healthcare provider in caring for your child. For children without a primary healthcare provider, the SBHC staff may become that provider. If a child needs care when school is closed, the parent may decide where to go, including area Bassett Healthcare sites when there are available openings.
