School Health Program
Montefiore Medical Center's School Health Program is the largest school-based health program of its kind in the country, with more than 20,000 children registered at 19 sites throughout the Bronx, including four elementary schools, three elementary/middle schools, two middle schools, two middle/high schools and five high schools.
All Montefiore school-based health centers provide comprehensive primary care services. The program has a particular interest in improved asthma care and adolescent health services. Mental health services focusing on depression, anxiety, bereavement, crisis intervention and family issues are available at each site.
The high school centers offer comprehensive adolescent healthcare, including reproductive healthcare services such as pregnancy testing and prenatal care; options counseling; family planning; screening, diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases including HIV counseling and testing; and routine Pap tests for sexually active girls.
Dental services, which include preventive services and minor reparative work, are available at three locations: Bronx Regional Campus, Clinton High School and PS/MS 95.
