SBHC Access to Services during COVID-19 as of Nov. 6, 2020 (Spanish available)
School-Based Health Centers (SBHCs) are medical clinics that offer a full range of physical, behavioral and preventive health services to all students, regardless of their ability to pay. SBHCs are located either within a school or on school grounds. By providing easy access to health care, SBHCs reduce barriers such as cost, transportation and concerns about confidentiality that keep parents and students from seeking the health services students need.
For more details on specific SBHC hours of operations and how to access services, please contact the SBHC directly.
Revised SBHC Standards for Certification starting July 1, 2017
The SBHC State Program Office (SPO) recently undertook a review of the SBHC Standards for Certification. The goal of this review was to reexamine the 2014 Standards for Certification to (1) identify and address any areas in need of clarification; (2) update sections to align with current best practice; and (3) continue to adapt the Standards to support operations and advance quality healthcare in a school setting.
All Oregon State certified SBHCs will be required to meet the minimum standards outlined in the revised Standards beginning in the 2017-2018 school year.
