Students at three public schools in Seattle will start the school year with a powerful new addition to their campuses: School-Based Health Centers.
The three new centers will be at Lincoln High School in Wallingford, Meany Middle School on Capitol Hill, and Robert Eagle Staff Middle School in north Seattle:
- At Lincoln HS, which is reopening this fall after being closed for 38 years, the health center will be operated by Neighborcare Health (which runs the largest number of School Based Health Centers in King County, with 14 in Seattle and one on Vashon).
- At Eagle Staff MS, which is named after Robert Eaglestaff, former Principal of the American Indian Heritage School that was previously on the same site, the center also will be operated by Neighborcare Health.
- At Meany MS, which was recently remodeled, the health center will be operated by Country Doctor Community Health Centers, a mainstay in community health in Seattle (with one of its main clinics located just a few blocks away).
