SBHCs in Washington

National Context

The national School-Based Health Alliance (SBHA) has conducted the National Census of School-Based Health Centers for more than twenty years. Across the country, the number of school-based health centers (SBHCs) has grown from 1,135 SBHCs in 1998 to roughly 3,900 known to SBHA today.

School-Based Health Centers in Washington State

In 1987, the Seattle City Council funded a three-year pilot of a SBHC at Rainier Beach High School, and services started in 1988. This successful pilot paved the way for Seattle levy funding for SBHCs in 1990 and King County levy funding in 2016. State and federal funding became available for SBHCs statewide in 2021.

There has been rapid growth of SBHCs across the state in recent years, with diverse operational and funding models, with the number almost doubling since 2017. Today, there are more than 70 SBHC sites, sponsored by more than 25 healthcare agencies, in over 30 school districts—urban, suburban, and rural—across Washington.
