Mobile clinic tours set Saturday at Port Angeles High School

PORT ANGELES — An introductory look at a mobile service to bring medical, dental and behavioral health screenings to students in the Port Angeles School District is planned Saturday.

The Mobile Health Clinic will begin visiting K-12 schools in the district on Monday.

The 38-foot Winnebago RV will be open for walk-through tours from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Port Angeles High School at 304 E. Park Ave. Safety measures, including strict masking protocols and physical distancing, will be in place to ensure a safe environment for everyone.

The mobile clinic operated by North Olympic Healthcare Network (NOHN) in partnership with the Port Angeles School District is expected to visit each school in the district once a week through the school year.

“We know how important good health is to student success and that accessing healthcare during school hours can be a challenge for students and parents,” said Dr. Michael Maxwell, NOHN CEO.

“We’re excited to expand our collaboration with the Port Angeles School District by bringing services directly to students throughout the district.”

Donations have come from the United Health Foundation, Molina Healthcare and Olympic Medical Center.

“The NOHN Mobile Health Clinic is another layer of services to support our students’ well-being,” said PASD Superintendent Martin Brewer.

“We are grateful for the partnership with NOHN and will now provide healthcare to students that is easy to access and decrease time spent out of class. The new Mobile Health Clinic is a great win for our district, its students and the community.”

Consent forms must be on file for students to receive care. Parents must attend behavioral health appointments with students who are younger than 13.
