NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is pleased to announce the grand opening of its largest School-Based Health Center to date. Located on the first floor of the Kennedy Campus in the Bronx, this health center will service the needs of more than 3,000 students spread out through eight high schools. The Center will provide students with easy access to comprehensive clinical services which include physical exams, asthma care, diabetes monitoring, teeth cleanings, crisis counseling, reproductive health care and more.
Services provided by the School-Based Health Center are coordinated with the student’s parents, family doctor and other community based providers. Research shows that School-Based Health Centers reduce over utilization of emergency room visits and annual hospitalization cost.
