    School Based Health Center

    The Highland Park School-Based Health Center (SBHC) is a full service health clinic that provides physical and mental health care for the students of Highland Park Elementary. The Health Center is operated by Neighborcare Health and partially supported by the Families and Education Levy and the City of Seattle.  Neighborcare Health is a network of medical, dental and school based clinics, serving more than 48,000 patients in Seattle each year. The SBHC is staffed by a Nurse Practitioner, a Mental Health Counselor, and a Health Coordinator.

    We help students do better in school by working to solve physical and mental health problems, preventing serious illness, and promoting healthy lifestyles. Neighborcare Health is committed to creating a healthcare home and encouraging long-term relationships between patients and providers that include medical, dental, and mental health care. Our goal is to provide care to students and families who have difficulty accessing services and not to duplicate services already being provided outside of school.

    Services offered at the Highland Park School-Based Health Center include:

    • Immunizations
    • Well Child Check Ups & sports physicals
    • Preventive health care
    • Evaluation and treatment of common health problems
    • Individual and group therapy
    • Coordinator of care with community providers

    It’s Not Too Late to Get Vaccinated Against the Flu!

    Protect yourself and your loved ones by getting your family vaccinated against the flu. Influenza spreads readily from person to person in schools, workplaces and homes. Everyone over 6 months of age should get the annual flu vaccine. Vaccination is especially important for pregnant women, people caring for children under six months of age, the elderly, and people with long-term health problems. Highland Park students can get the flu vaccine conveniently at school at the Neighborcare school-based health clinic (click here, call 206-455-9025, or see school nurse for more information). In addition, flu vaccine (shots and nasal spray) is available at many healthcare provider offices and pharmacies for those who have insurance or are able to pay for vaccination. Visit https://vaccinefinder.org/ to help find locations. If you don’t have insurance, you can find free or low-cost insurance through https://www.wahealthplanfinder.org/_content/Homepage.html . Other immunization assistance is available through the Family Health Line at 1-800-322-2588.
