CHRISTUS School Clinics

Words from a Working Parent

“Many times we have to wait and take them to an emergency care place on the weekend, just so we don’t get financially penalized for missing work. I thank God for CHRISTUS School clinics. I have such great relief knowing my children will not suffer because they can go to the school clinic when they are sick and I don’t have to miss work and income to take them to the doctor.”

Keeping Children Healthy

CHRISTUS School Clinics keep students healthy and in school through basic medical and screening services and mental health counseling. Each year, 9 CHRISTUS School Clinics are called upon more than 6,000 times to care for children at school – where they spend the greatest portion of their day.

Telemedicine Increases Capacity to Serve

CHRISTUS Foundation for HealthCare uses an innovative telemedicine program in all CHRISTUS School Clinics. Via laptop computers, medical assistants working at School Clinics can connect with CHRISTUS family nurse practitioners and physicians. These healthcare professionals can see what a school’s medical assistant sees, ask students questions, provide real-time diagnosis and even prescriptions.
