Student Health

Providing services to students while they are in school plays a key role in keeping students healthy and focused.

Healthy kids learn better. That’s why Heartland Health Centers believes in School-Based Health Centers and has six sites in the Chicago area that provide urgent and primary care health care services. We provide a welcoming space convenient for both students and parents where we address a myriad of health problems. The rich array of services at our school sites have a positive impact on student well-being and academic success, and are a model for the nation.
