What is a School-Based Health Center?
A school-based health center (SBHC) is a health care facility located inside a school or on school grounds. It is staffed by a multi-disciplinary team of medical and behavioral health specialists, and sometimes dental professionals, health educators and/or health insurance enrollment specialists.
SBHCs serve students whose access to care is limited. Services are designed to identify problems early, provide continuity of care, and improve academic participation.
