SCHOOL LINKED HEALTH CENTER
Muskingum Valley Health Centers (MVHC) will be implementing a School Linked Health Center (SLHC) that will provide comprehensive primary care services including, pediatric, adolescent, and dental care, located at 2725 Pinkerton Lane (the old Maysville Middle School). This community-based model of care is designed to provide affordable, age-appropriate, confidential, and convenient care to students.
We will provide not only preventative, well-child services, but will also treat illnesses. If your child is at school and becomes ill, the school nurse will evaluate the symptoms. If those symptoms warrant treatment that same day, the school nurse will notify you and the schools will transport your child to MVHC where the appropriate care can be rendered. A school Clinic Aide will accompany your child to the health center and remain with your child for the duration of the visit. MVHC has constructed the pediatric/adolescent area with special protection considerations (a secure waiting room and treatment rooms) to ensure that your child is always safe.
If your child does not have a physician, MVHC is accepting new patients and would embrace the opportunity to become your child's healthcare provider. We are partnering with Northside Pharmacy for prescription delivery for your family’s convenience.
Please complete the appropriate Enrollment Packet form for your school to allow us to treat your child without your presence. We will of course communicate with you about any treatment provided. Enrolling in My Chart is a great way to get timely information about your child's medical treatment online. Please fill out the Child Proxy form for children ages 12 and under or the Teen Proxy form for adolescents ages 13 - 18. If your child is already a patient of ours, we still need you to complete the form so that treatment during school hours can be provided seamlessly. Please call 740.891.9000 for help or questions with enrollment.
