It was a new idea, just a few years in existence, and it seems to be working.  Health clinics integrated with school systems for quick and convenient access for students to health care. School based health centers are making it easier for parents to stay at work and kids to spend more time at school and less time traveling to the doctors’ office. Elaine Severson is an R.N. with Deschutes County Health Services. She says the centers offer comprehensive physicals, hearing and developmental screening. They can also diagnose and treat illnesses, and even write prescriptions right there in the facility that's either right across the street or often located on the school's campus.  “Well, kids fourteen and under need parental consent and parents can pre-consent for kids to receive care, but the staff always makes sure that they call the parent and have a lot of communication with them.” Deschutes County Health Services has five school based health centers operating in the area.   And they'll be offering sports physicals this summer for little or no cost depending on whether or not you have insurance.
