The Mission of School Based Health Center

In an attempt to address health disparities and improve the health of the whole child, the Omaha Public Schools and Building Bright Futures began working together on a plan that would provide quality health care for Omaha area students. The planning resulted in the implementation of school-based health centers (SBHC), which are on-site health centers that promote the health and educational success of school-aged children. Through this combined effort, they hope to reach students in the Omaha Public School district who: do not have access to quality health care because they lack a medical home or a routine primary care provider; are uninsured; or have chronic illnesses or conditions that cause them to miss school. These health care issues can have a tremendous impact on a student’s ability to succeed in the classroom.

Partners in the SBHC implementation include:

  • Children’s Hospital and Medical Center
  • University of Nebraska Medical Center
  • Creighton University Medical Center
  • Boys Town National Research Hospital
  • OneWorld Community Health Center
  • Charles Drew Health Center

School Based Heath Centers

All School Based Health Centers are for OPS students and their siblings.  They accept Medicaid, Kids Connection, private insurance, and have a sliding fee scale for those without insurance.  Families can make appointments at any of the clinics regardless of the child's home school.
