Please remember our School Based Health Center on our campus on the 2nd floor of "B" building above the student health room. The health center is a partnership between our school and the Wai'anae Coast Comprehensive Health Center to ensure all of our health care needs are available on campus. Right now they are working with Kaiser so that those of us with Kaiser insurance can be seen there. However, students with Tricare insurance have to be seen by Tricare health providers.
Our school based health center offers services such as TB tests, sports physicals, help with issues such as headaches or sore throats or any other "sick-needs". They can even send prescriptions to the pharmacy of your choice. All that is needed is a consent to be filled out by your parent or guardian. But don't let that stop you. If you need to see them for anything, they can always call your parent guardian and get consent to see you over the phone and send you home with a paper consent to bring back. Each paper consent signed lasts the entire time we are students at WHS. Also, if your doctor is other than Kaiser or Tricare and is not at the comprehensive , you can still be seen in the school clinic and still keep your primary doctor. If you have no insurance, the healthcare center can help you apply! Make sure your stop by to see them today
If you're interested in the health field or just want to make a positive change in your community, check out the newest club on campus, the Student Health Leadership Hui, partnered with the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center's School-Based Health Center. Meetings are held every Monday from 2:30pm-3:30pm in Rm. U204. Contact the health center for more information.
