The Milwaukie High School Health & Wellness Center is a health clinic open to all students attending Milwaukie High School, Milwaukie Academy of the Arts, New Urban High School, and Rowe Middle School.

All services are free of charge. If a student has health insurance we will try to bill the insurance to help fund our efforts.

 A student or parent can walk in or call to make an appointment. We do our best to work with class schedules and, whenever possible, appointments are scheduled during free periods or study hall. If there is an urgent concern, we may pull a student out of class.

 

Services
We offer all the services that a normal doctor’s office provides. We offer comprehensive preventive, primary medical, dental, and mental healthcare for currently enrolled MHS/MAA, New Urban, and Rowe MS students.

·       Routine physical exams, including sports physicals

·       Dental cleanings, screenings, fluoride and sealants

·       Early detection, diagnosis and treatment of illness and injury

·       Vision, dental and blood pressure screenings

·       Immunizations

·       Mental health services

·       Age-appropriate reproductive health

·       Routine lab tests (Labs may incur a cost. The provider will contact the parent/guardian before labs are done.)

·       Prescription medications

·       Health education, counseling and wellness promotion

·       Fitness and nutrition education and counseling

·       Referrals for healthcare services not provided at the clinic

·       Assistance with applying for health insurance

How to set up an appointment
Students are encouraged to come to the clinic to set up an appointment. Sometimes same day appointments are available. If we are unable to provide a same-day appointment, we can often get students in within a week. Parents and guardians may call to set up an appointment for students at:
503.353.5847

Vaccines
The clinic is currently able to offer certain vaccinations to eligible students (OHP insured & uninsured). Students, parents, or guardians should contact the clinic for more information. For all minors, students under the age of 18, we require parent or guardian consent in order to administer vaccinations.

Cost
Clinic services (excluding labs) are free for all students, with or without insurance. If your student has health insurance we will attempt to bill the insurance to fund our efforts so we can provide service to as many students as possible. If your insurance does not cover the cost of labs, you may be billed for them. Our providers will work with parents/guardians to make sure unnecessary fees are not incurred.

Insurance
You or your child may be eligible for free or low cost health insurance through CoverOregon or Kaiser Permanente Child Health Program.
