Overview

Overview

Cleveland Clinic Children’s School–Based Health Center offers a mobile, full-service pediatric office staffed with our healthcare professionals. For the school districts we've partnered with, the mobile unit will visit them regularly throughout the school year to provide any needed care. Should your child require healthcare when not at school, our School–Based Health staff or your child’s Cleveland Clinic primary care practitioner can see your child virtually during regular business hours. This service is available through MyChart, which can be accessed online or through your mobile device. 

The mobile unit provides voluntary, comprehensive healthcare services to students from kindergarten through 12th grade. We know that children who are healthy are best equipped to learn and excel in the classroom. Cleveland Clinic Children's is committed to ensuring that all students receive high-quality, comprehensive healthcare with the added convenience of receiving care on the mobile unit, virtually in school or at home. The School–Based Health Center will collaborate with your child's existing healthcare provider or can act as a primary care provider for them. If your child needs care outside of our operating hours, you can make an appointment at any Cleveland Clinic Children’s location.

Enrollment

Enrollment

Parents or legal guardians must complete an enrollment packet in order for their child to be seen. If your child does not have a completed School-Based Health Center enrollment on file, they will be unable to use the program.

Enrollment is voluntary and can be discontinued at any time. There are no eligibility requirements except that your child must currently attend a school district where a School-Based Health Center is located. To arrange for your child to be seen at the School-Based Health Center, you may call your child’s school nurse, our mobile health center staff or send a note. Parents are welcome and encouraged to accompany their children. If your child is too ill to attend school and you would like them to be seen by our staff, you may call the school nurse to arrange a same-day appointment.
