St. Claire HealthCare and Rowan County Schools Collaborate to Introduce SchoolHealth+ Program

St. Claire HealthCare is excited to announce a partnership with Rowan County Schools to offer students and staff virtual access to primary care and urgent care services. Through their SchoolHealth+ program, students and staff in public schools within the county are offered in-school virtual care for a variety of illnesses and injuries.

Earlier in the school year, the program was initiated in select schools within the county, and, now it is available in all Rowan County schools. Students and staff members can receive healthcare for allergies, cough and congestion, fevers, upset stomachs, rashes, sore throats, and more all without leaving the school.

When a student or staff member visits the school nurse with an illness, the nurse will evaluate if the patient needs to be seen by a healthcare provider. The school will then contact the parents or guardians of the student to obtain consent for a virtual appointment with a St. Claire physician or advance practice professional.

“We are very excited and thankful for the opportunity to partner with and offer these virtual services to the Rowan County School District,” said Teretha Johnson, BSN, RN, CEN, Director of Urgent Treatment Centers and Occupational Health for SCH. “The SchoolHealth+ program will help to provide increased access and convenience to healthcare for their students and staff.”

After the visit, parents can view the visit information through their child’s Patient Portal, just like after a traditional office visit. The Patient Portal can be accessed through

SCH will bill insurance or Medicaid, as with traditional office visits and if there is a copay, a bill will be sent to the insurance holder. If your child does not have insurance, SCH will work with you to ensure your child can receive the same quality healthcare services.
