Mobile Health Clinic planned for Port Angeles schools

PORT ANGELES — North Olympic Healthcare Network, in partnership with the Port Angeles School District, will deploy a new mobile delivery model to bring medical services to the district’s K-12 students beginning Monday.

The North Olympic Healthcare Network (NOHN) Mobile Health Clinic, a 38-foot Winnebago RV featuring specialized medical and technical equipment, will visit each school at least once a week throughout the school year.

NOHN staff on board will provide medical and behavioral health services directly to students at each school’s location.

PASD staff, students and families are invited to attend an introductory demonstration and walk-through of the Mobile Health Clinic at Port Angeles High School, 304 E. Park Ave., from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

Safety measures, including strict masking protocols and social distancing, will be in place to ensure a safe environment for everyone.

A formal open house is expected to be announced soon.

“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.”
