School-Based Health Centers

  • To ensure students are healthy and ready to learn, Omaha Public Schools partners with One World Community Health Center and Charles Drew Health Center to provide quality health care within nine School-Based Health Centers (SBHC) in buildings throughout the district.

    The SBHCs are staffed by licensed, advanced-practice registered nurses and physician assistants who can diagnose, treat, and prescribe medications for many illnesses that keep children out of the classroom. The SBHCs can also provide the required school physical and immunizations.

    With parent/guardian consent, any Omaha Public Schools student and their minor siblings may use the services provided in the SBHC. The relationship with a student’s medical home is not disrupted if the SBHC is utilized by the student. The SBHC accepts Medicaid, Kids Connection, commercial insurance or they can provide a low-cost, sliding-fee schedule for uninsured children based on family income and size.

    To enroll, the School-Based Health Center Enrollment and Consent Form must be completed by a parent/guardian and returned to school. For more complete information about hours, services and cost, please call your school nurse for assistance.
