Mt. Vernon City Schools has partnered with Nationwide Children’s Hospital to provide students with the same health care they would receive at a doctor’s office – right at school. The Nationwide Children’s school-based health center, located inside the high school adjacent to the Career Center Upper Lot, provides additional access to health services and is open to all Mt. Vernon students and their siblings.
The school-based health center can:
• Help when your child has a sore throat, bad cough, earache, headache
• Give shots (immunizations)
• Do blood work
• Perform checkups (well visits)
• Send medication to the pharmacy
• Provide sports physicals
• Treat Asthma
• Treat anxiety, depression and ADHD
• Connect you with a doctor
• Treat diabetes
• And more
The center is not meant to replace your child’s existing pediatrician or family doctor. A parent or guardian must provide consent for your child to be seen by the provider. Select Universal Consent Form
, or see your school nurse for consent forms.
