     The Heritage HealthCare School-Based Center has become an essential part of HealthCare for children with the primary goal of ensuring students have access to high-quality health care when they need it.  The Heritage HealthCare School-Based Center provides primary and preventive care, chronic care and referrals as needed to specialists.

 

     The Heritage HealthCare School-Based Center amplifies the resources families have, and we collaborate with your primary care physician to ensure that all services are provided with a high level of quality care in a compassionate learning environment.

 

     Heritage HealthCare’s bi-lingual School-Based Center offers a full team onsite whenever school is in session which provides comprehensive primary health care to the children of PS. 192.  Full onsite care consists of a Nurse Practitioner (NP), and a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) or a Medical Assistant (MA), who work in concert with the school staff to provide patient-centered care to the students while at school.

 

     The Heritage HealthCare School-Based Health Center is open Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. during school days.  The clinic is available to all students, regardless of their ability to pay.

     Students may be referred to the Heritage HealthCare Center for specialty care or follow-up services that are not currently provided at the school-based health center.

     The Heritage School-Based Health Center believes successful school-health partnerships share a common vision of young citizens thriving in the classroom and beyond.  By integrating into the education environment, school-based health care contributes directly to the school’s mission and delivers outcomes that matter to educators and parents such as improving youths’ academic performance and living a healthy life.  Collaboration with school administrators, teachers, and support staff ensures the school-based health partnerships meets the needs of the students effortlessly, effectively, and seamlessly.
