CHAMBER: Ribbon Cutting at Mount Vernon High School Health Center
Nationwide Children's Hospital and Mount Vernon City Schools is hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of Nationwide Children's Hospital School-Based Health Center inside the Mount Vernon High School.
Due to school dismissal, please arrive no earlier than 3:45 p.m.
Mount Vernon City School students can get the same health care services that they would receive at a doctor's office, but right at school.
A new school-based health center is opening at Mount Vernon High School. In partnership with Nationwide Children's Hospital and the district, the school-based health center will provide additional access to health care. It is open to all Mount Vernon City School students and their siblings. It is not meant to replace a child's existing pediatrician but provide help to those students who do not have a doctor.
Services offered include:
Regular checkups (well visits)
Help when your child is sick
Treatment for asthma or diabetes
Help with work permit physicals
Treatment for anxiety, depression and ADHD
Consent from the student's parent/guardian is needed for their child to be seen at the center. Appointments will be available during school and before and after school. Walk-in appointments may be available. Parents and guardians are always welcome to be at the visit, but don't need to be. Staff will follow up with the parent/guardian after the visit to explain what took place and any needed follow up. More information is available from the district or at NationwideChildrens.org/Care-Connection.
Join us for the ribbon cutting ceremony and see this new facility located inside of Mount Vernon High School.
