Wilson Area School-Based Health Centers
Recognized by NC School Boards Association

Wilson County Schools Board of Education received an Award for Excellence in Educational Programs from the North Carolina School Boards Association for the Wilson Area School-Based Health (WASH) centers at Forest Hills Middle, Beddingfield High and Hunt High schools. Healthcare Foundation of Wilson provided funding to establish the WASH centers at all three locations.  
“We are grateful for the proactive mindset of Wilson County Health Department and Wilson County Schools for prioritizing the health and well-being of students so they can learn and thrive at school,” said Denise O’Hara. “This award-winning team is a remarkable example of collaboration for the greater good, and we are proud to be a funding partner.”
WASH provides accessible and affordable physical and preventative health services.  Any Wilson County Schools student or staff member can be seen by appointment at the WASH centers whether insured or noninsured. Same day appointments are available. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call 252-360-0769 or send an email to wash@wilsonschoolsnc.net.

“WASH has benefited our students and staff tremendously – especially during the pandemic. It is a stellar example of what can be accomplished when school districts and community partners work together. More than 10,300 students and 1,700 staff members now have access to caring health providers right in our schools. I am grateful to the WASH staff for providing such excellent care to our students and staff, myself included, and thankful for the incredible community partners who made it possible. I look forward to our continued partnership and hope we will open more centers in the future.”
