Bassett Healthcare Network is pleased to announce the opening of a new school-based health center (SBHC) at Gilbertsville-Mount Upton Central School, serving pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade students in the school district. It is Bassett’s 21st school-based health center in central New York. The program has been funded through a grant and monies secured by NYS Senator James Seward, as well as a generous contribution by the Clark Foundation.

The SBHC may become a child’s primary source of health care. If a child already has a health care provider, the SBHC will work with that provider in caring for the child. Care provided in the SBHC setting includes:

• Annual physical examinations

• Immunizations

• Diagnosis and treatment of both short-and long-term illnesses

• Mental health services

• Health education

• Preventive dental care
