BCSD Announces Opening of the ’Bee Well’ School-based Health Clinic for Students, Families & Staff

October 21, 2019

 

The Baldwin County School District, in partnership with Communities In Schools and Georgia College, announces the opening of ‘Bee Well’ School-based Health Clinic inside the Baldwin County Early Learning Center. The ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for Monday, October 21, 2019 at 3:00 PM.

 

The ‘Bee Well’ Clinic is part of a $2.3 million ‘Wraparound Baldwin’ Federal Grant. The clinic will offer healthcare for Baldwin County School District students, their families and district employees.  Students in the district will be provided transportation, if needed, from their respective schools to the Early Learning Center to receive necessary medical treatment.

 

“This is another example of how our partnership with Communities In Schools and Georgia College is helping use to identify innovative ways to remove barriers to student learning,” said Superintendent Dr. Noris Price.  “This school-based health clinic is going to have an incredible impact for our students and families to get the care they need, keeping our students healthy and in school.”

 

“Access to care is a tremendous challenge for many of our families,” said Sandy Baxter, director of Communities in Schools of Milledgeville-Baldwin County.  “Some of our students have simple ailments that go untreated, drastically affecting their ability to focus, learn and achieve their true potential. This clinic will see to it that those health care needs are met, that our students and families are healthy and we are going to do so making sure that no one will be turned away.”


The school-based health clinic will be operation during the week and will be staffed by Community Health Care Systems, Inc. (CHCS) which is a federally qualified health center that provides quality care regardless of insurance or ability to pay. They accept most types of insurance including Medicare, Medicare Advantage Plus, Commercial insurance plans, Medicaid, Tri-Care, and others. Their fees are similar to other providers, but sliding scale discounts are available for indigent and uninsured patients. Sliding fee discounts are determined by an application process that can be completed during the first visit to school-based health clinic.
