About Us

Providing Care
Sacagawea Health Center provides care to students within Columbia County who need it, insured or not, offering access to all who may not get the medical attention they need.

Preventing the Spread of Infection
By diagnosing and treating a student's contagious disease, Sacagawea Health Center can help stop the spread of infection. School based health centers can be a first line of defense against outbreaks of infectious disease like the mumps or Avian flu.  

Supporting Education
Studies by John's Hopkins University, Emory University, and other respected institutions show that school-based health centers decrease absenteeism, tardiness and school discipline or behavior problems. Keeping students healthy and in the classroom directly translates into improved academic performance.

Saving Money
By reducing visits young people make to the emergency room for non-critical care, Sacagawea Health Center and other school base health centers help curb increases in premiums and taxes associated with providing emergency care to under or uninsured patients.
