Deschutes County has just received a grant to pay for the clinic for two years.

 

The grants are for $60-thousand the first year and $53 thousand the second year.

 

Deschutes County School Health Clinic Supervisor Linda Webb says Bend High was picked to be the beneficiary.

 

"Well, the poverty rate is a little higher there than at other schools and also there's a teen parent program there, so we  can also see the babies.  And this keeps the teens in school when they have a medial need because they miss so much."

 

Bend High plans to convert existing space at the high school for the new clinic that will be staffed by Mosiac Medical personnel.

 

The clinic should be operating by next spring.
