School Health Programs
Through a partnership with Moore County Schools and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, the FirstHealth School Health Program provides school-based nurses to 23 schools in Moore County.
The program has received both state and national recognition as a best practice standard as it contributes to the academic success and advancement of the well being and the lifelong achievement of the school-aged child.
Specially trained nurses help more than 12,500 school children develop positive responses to normal development while promoting health and safety, intervening with actual and potential health problems and providing case management and other services.
Call any Moore County school to reach any of the school nurses or contact the FirstHealth School Health Program at (910) 715-1569.
School Health Centers
Imagine you are working and your child gets sick at school. Usually, this means a day lost from work.
But this is not necessarily true for hundreds of school children in Montgomery County, where the “doctor’s office” is located on the school campus, just steps away from the classroom door.
This sensible, convenient and valuable access to health care is a reality in two Montgomery County Schools. The two School Health Centers provide on-site medical care that is open to any child in the Montgomery County School System.
The centers provide physical, mental, nutritional, and health and wellness interventions that are available to all children even in the most rural sections of the county. Prior permission is required from the parents or legal guardian of any child seen in the center. A patient service representative, on-site registered nurse and a family nurse practitioner provide care for thousands of children each year.
You are invited to visit one or both of these centers at the following locations to see health, wellness, learning and easy access to care for children working together to meet FirstHealth’s core purpose— to care for people—as a hospital without walls.
