On Thursday June 13, Jackson Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Errick L. Greene visited the JHCHC main clinic located at 3502 West Northside Drive in Jackson. JHCHC was the first Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in the Nation to establish school-based clinics.
Currently, JHCHC operates clinics at the following JPS schools:
(Bold Indicates physical location)
Van Winkle Elementary
Isable Elementary School
Jim Hill High School
Pecan Park Elementary
G.N. Smith Elementary
Powell Middle School
Northwest Middle School
North Jackson Elementary
We routinely provide well child physical exams, including hearing and vision screenings, as well as following children diagnosed with medical conditions. We also perform dental exams, dental prophylaxis, and sealants on the students in the program.
JHCHC wants to make sure that all children in the state of Mississippi are in good health. We are working with your child’s school to provide medical and/or dental health screenings. Our staff will perform the following services: health screenings, dental screenings, and sick care services.
These services will occur during the school day. If we find a health/dental problem, we will contact you immediately and also schedule a follow–up treatment with your consent. A parent letter will also be sent home with your child in regards to their visit. Before a child can receive these services, all forms must be completed and returned to the school’s clinic.
