School-Based Health Programs

School-Based Health Programs

Hackley Community Care’s (HCC) School-Based Health Programs are designed to meet students and families where they live: in their neighborhoods. HCC was established in the schools in 2005 when HCC was awarded a state grant to operate in three middle schools. The purpose of the School-Based Health Programs was to create a model of care for underserved children and youth through health education. Services have continuously expanded to include health, dental care, and behavioral health services.

Today, the School-Based Health Programs model has expanded services to include two Child and Adolescent Health Centers at Muskegon High School and Oakridge Middle / High School. The school-based health program has developed successful partnerships with 13l Muskegon County School districts. The Muskegon Teen Health Center and Oakridge Teen Health Center serve as the Network Hub to 13 school-based sites that serve as an anchor for kids, residents, neighborhoods, and schools. Signed parental consent is required for your child to receive most services

Child and Adolescent Health Centers

Hackley Community Care’s Teen Health Centers at Muskegon High School and Oakridge Middle /High School provide medical, behavioral health, and dental services to children ages 5 to 21. Services are available to students from all school districts.

Behavioral Health Model

School Wellness Program at Muskegon Middle School

The School Wellness Program (SWP) provides on-site health care services, screenings and health education to students at Muskegon Middle School. Services also include dental screenings and cleanings and behavioral health counseling.

Mobile Dental Services

Students have access to Mobile Dental Services in the districts we serve, during school hours. The 26-ft, Mobile Dental Unit provides preventative and treatment services at school sites within our existing service area. The mobile dental unit is staffed with a dentist, hygienist, and includes an operatory and digital Panoramic (PAN) X-ray machine equipment that allows for enhanced diagnostic images, and more accurate evaluation and treatment planning for patients.

Oral health services in the schools enhance patient education regarding smoking and its impact on oral health, including cancer. The mobile unit replaces HCC’s portable mobile equipment that was being utilized within the school sites.

If you are interested in utilizing our mobile dental services at your school, please 231.737.8603.
