School Health Clinics of Santa Clara County
Keeping kids healthy and in school
 

Services

If you need medical care for your children, we can be your medical provider. Our school clinics provide the health services that children need.

Urgent care
No appointments are needed for urgent illness or injury. Kids can walk in any time during clinic hours.

Physical exams
Like any family doctor, we do regular physical exams and well-baby health checks.

Monitoring and treatment of chronic diseases
Kids can miss a lot of school when they have chronic illnesses that aren’t managed properly. We treat and monitor kids with diabetes, asthma, and other chronic diseases so that they remain as healthy as possible.

Immunizations and tuberculosis skin tests
We provide the shots and tests that kids need for school and for disease prevention.

Dental screening and referrals
We check kids’ teeth and help make appointments with dentists.

Diagnostic lab tests
We provide basic lad tests and refer out for other lab services.

Prescriptions
We write prescriptions and can help patients get the medicines they need.

Confidential reproductive services
Free and confidential services are available at all our clinics to prevent teen pregnancy and treat sexually transmitted diseases.

Mental health services
We pay attention to the total health of children and provide counseling and referral if needed to other mental health services.

Nutritional counseling and health education
Our registered dietician provides information, education, and counseling to families about healthy living and disease prevention. Our pediatric weight management program addresses childhood obesity. Read more about the pediatric weight management program.

Health insurance enrollment assistance
Many children we see are uninsured. We help their families fill in and submit applications for public-funded health insurance. Sign up with us to be your primary care provider.

“Every child needs a medical home. When children’s physical and emotional needs are met, they do better in school, enjoy going, and have a greater chance for success later in life.”
