Denver Health’s School-Based Health Centers provide primary care, mental health, reproductive health education and insurance enrollment assistance services to Denver Public School students and siblings.
In partnership with a school nurse, our medical professionals treat major health conditions that affect school-aged children during the school year, keeping them at school and parents at ease, all at a convenient location.
Denver Health School-Based Health Centers (SBHCs) offer NO COST (no co-pays) healthcare to all DPS students. Services include:
Parents or guardians must sign consent forms before a student may use any of our services. Once this is complete, students may use the health center at any time during the school year. Consents are good for one school year.
Students in grades 6-12 are able to go to the clinic alone, but children in pre-school through fifth grade, must have a parent present with them.
Supporting family communication is a principle goal of our school-based health centers. Our staff encourages students to discuss their health with their parents. However, parents are not routinely notified when a student uses the health center, except by student request or when the staff becomes aware of serious health concerns.
A parent or guardian must complete the below consent forms and return them to the assigned School-Based Health Center.
Telehealth and in-person appointments are available. The Denver Health SBHCs are taking extra precautions to keep you and your students safe, such as temperature checks, cleaning all medical equipment between patients, etc.
Questions or want to schedule an appointment? Call the SBHC central phone line (303) 602-8958 or email them at SBHC@dhha.org. For general information about the SBHCs, visit: https://www.denverhealth.org/services/school-based-health-centers
