IC Imagine School Based Health Center
Blue Ridge Health is thrilled to announce that beginning this academic year, school-based health services are available for your child on-site, in their school.
By offering on-site medical care by Physicians, Physician’s Assistants and Nurse Practitioners, overseen by our Medical Director, Dr. MaryShell Zaffino, we minimize potential disruptions to your child’s school day and your workday. Our counselors, nurses and dietitians can, among other things:
- Support and care for acute problems like stomachaches and headaches
- Make sure children’s immunizations are current
- Provide nutritional counseling and weight management guidance
- Work with children who face school, social and family challenges
These services are available to your child with your signed permission on the “BRCHS School Health Center Student Registration and Permission Form”.
The health center in your child’s school provides a number of services free of charge. However, when medical decision-making and/or a prescription are necessary, we operate like any other doctor’s office and bill health insurance for medical visits. For this reason, we ask that you provide the requested insurance information on the back of the permission form.
If you do not have health insurance, we are happy to help you and your family apply for coverage that best meets your needs. For those without insurance, we offer a sliding fee scale based on income and household size.
To register your child:
Our office is open school days 7:45am – 3:30pm. Please call or stop by with any further questions to meet our staff or tour the health center. We’d love to meet you!
Completed forms may be sent in with your students or dropped off at the front office at any time.
