Fairfield City School District has first fully integrated suburban school-based program in the U.S.
Primary Health Solutions, a Butler County based organization that operates Federally Qualified Health Centers, has a partnershp with the Fairfield City School District, OneSight, Interact for Health, Butler Behavioral Health Services and the Delta Dental Foundation to provide access to primary medical, dental, vision and behavioral health services to students, their family members and school district staff. The center is the first fully integrated suburban school-based provider in the United States.
Parents must provide permission for their child to have access to the services. Services will not be provided without parental consent. The center is improving access to care for all children within the district, regardless of their insurance carrier or lack of insurance. Center staff are available to assist families with insurance enrollment, if uninsured. School-based healthcare can serve students differently, based on need. Statistics show that teens are the least likely to get the recommended health services. Medical services include immunizations, sports/work/annual physicals, asthma or other chronic disease management and acute care for sick or injured students. Mental Health services are based on unique client needs. Vision services include comprehensive eye examinations and the prescribing and dispensing of corrective lenses, if necessary. Dental services include preventative exams, cleanings, X-rays and corrective treatment as needed.
The purpose of the center is to keep students in school and ready to learn. Students will receive care during the school day, without requiring the parents to leave work and lose wages.
