Health Clinics Coming to Two Schools
Health Clinics Coming to Two Schools

Workers move boxes into the new clinic space at Esquire Hills

Peninsula Community Health Services will open clinics in Fairview and Esquire Hills this fall.

When students are healthy, they learn better and come to school more often. School-based health clinics make it easier for students, their families and school staff to access healthcare.

The Fairview clinic will open three days a week. The Esquire Hills clinic will open two days a week. All Central Kitsap families with students in CK Schools can make appointments at the Esquire Hills and Fairview clinics.

Services offered include:

  • Sports physicals
  • Immunizations
  • Preventative health care
  • Evaluation and treatment of common health problems
  • Mental health care
  • Chemical dependency treatment

Peninsula Community Health (PCHS) funds the clinics, and schools provide the space in their main offices. PCHS also operates clinics in North Mason and Bremerton schools.

School nurses will continue to serve all students in a school. A visit to the school-based health clinic will be more like a visit to the doctor’s office, where they diagnose and treat illness, prescribe medications and more to their patients.

Consent Forms

Students seen at the clinic must be either with their parents or guardians, or their parents or guardians must sign a consent form.

Families at Esquire Hills and Fairview will be given consent forms at the start of the school year to approve care at the PCHS school-based clinics and to provide insurance information. 

For more information, call PCHS at 360-377-3776.
