About Denver Health's School-based Health Centers
Denver Health's School-based Health Centers (SBHC) form a large network of health centers located inside Denver Public School (DPS) campuses that serve any DPS student as well as children enrolled in DPS-affiliated Early Childhood Education programs at no charge to families. We offer medical, mental health, dental, health education and family planning, as well as insurance enrollment and advising services.
Our services are available at all locations throughout the school year and at a limited number of locations during the summer. School-based Health Centers offer convenient services that limit the amount of time students spend out of class and the amount of time parents/guardians have to take off work to attend appointments. In most cases, students can obtain same-day or next-day appointments.
