Third WASH clinic opens at Hunt High School
The third Wilson Area School-Based Health Clinic (WASH) opened at Hunt High School in early May 2021. Healthcare Foundation of Wilson has provided more than $1.1 million in funding for three WASH clinics, including two previously opened locations at Forest Hills Middle School and Beddingfield High School.
The health clinics are staffed with a family nurse practitioner, and there is a registered nurse at each school. Any student or staff member at Wilson County Schools can be seen at the on-site school clinics for wellness or sick visits. The clinics serve both the insured and uninsured.
Clinic services include but are not limited to the following:
- Physical exams
- Diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions
- Acute care services
- Health education related to physical fitness, sexual health, etc.
- Blood pressure management
- Diabetes management
Healthcare Foundation of Wilson is proud to partner with Wilson County Health Department, Wilson County Schools and Wilson County Department of Social Services to provide these services to our students.
