The School Based Health Center (SBHC) is a collaboration between the Lakeland and Post Falls School Districts and Heritage Health. The SBHC is a mobile health center that visits various locations around the school district on a rotating schedule and welcomes students of all ages as well as all community members. This is Idaho’s first School Based Health Center, and a tremendous opportunity for students, their families and relatives to access quality healthcare close to home.
The goal of the School Based Health Center is to meet students and other patients where they are and reduce barriers to healthcare. The SBCH provides important primary, preventative and early intervention healthcare services, as well as comprehensive health assessments, medication, vision screenings, treatment of both acute and chronic illness, health education and mental health.
The SBHC, just like any other Heritage Health Center, will bill insurance whenever possible in order to sustain the program. However, students will always receive care, regardless of ability to pay.
School Based Health Center services include:
- Diagnosing and Treating Injury and Illness
- Comprehensive Physical Exams
- Sports Physicals
- Screenings (blood pressure and vision)
- Laboratory Tests
- Mental or Emotional Health Services
- Referrals to Specialty Services as Needed
The School Based Health Center is staffed by an experienced Heritage Health provider who is dedicated to creating a safe and confidential environment for all patients.
