For the past several weeks, schools have been closed and will remain closed for the rest of the 2019-2020 academic year.  With schools being closed, a few districts are using this time to focus on construction projects.  One of these projects is the construction on the new Edgewood School-based Health Center at Edgewood High School.

 

In 2018, it was announced that PHS would be opening a new School-based Health Center for the students and community in the Edgewood City School District.  School-based Health Centers offer Medical, Dental, Vision, and Behavioral Health services to students as well as the community.  Students are able to receive school transportation during the school day to and from the health center for appointments, with parental consent.  This model of care breaks down barriers to accessing care for students and their families.  PHS accepts almost all health insurance plans including Medicaid and Medicare.  PHS also offers a sliding fee-scale for uninsured or under-insured patients.
