Health Centers for Schools

Memorial Hermann Health Centers for Schools provide medical, mental health, dental, nutritional, navigation, and exercise programming to eligible children and adolescents in 82 schools in the greater Houston area.

Ten school-based health clinics and three mobile dental vans serve as a holistic medical home for uninsured and Medicaid children and a secondary access point for insured children in 5 school districts.

Our primary goal is to bring increased healthcare to students who otherwise will not receive it and to keep them in school where they can learn. Successful partnerships like this share the mission of reducing student absenteeism and improving students’ overall health and well-being.

Locations

Memorial Hermann Community Benefit Corporation partners with five school districts – Houston, Pasadena, Aldine, Alief, and Lamar Consolidated ISDs – to provide a medical home for children in grades K-12. Each of the clinics is staffed by a nurse practitioner/physician assistant, social worker, licensed vocational nurse, and receptionist with additional dietitian and navigator support and physician oversight. The centers are open year-round, five days a week and serve students in the schools’ designated elementary, middle, and high school feeder patterns (check the links to ensure eligibility).
