Bringing Health Care to Schools
In 2012, Grand River Hospital District proudly opened Grand River Health Student Health Center in Rifle. Rifle’s Student Health Center is the second school-based health clinic in our service area.
Statistics show that students miss less school, learn easier and get the health care they need when school-based health care is available. Parents also miss less work when there is an accessible and inexpensive option for their child’s health care needs.
Grand River Health Student Health Center in Rifle is staffed by a licensed nurse practitioner, mental health therapist and coordinator. Services include physical exams, immunizations, routine lab tests and throat cultures, prescriptions and medications, care for acute injury and illness, management of chronic illnesses such as asthma, parent and student wellness education programs and referrals to community providers and agencies. A mental health therapist is also on staff to help patients through a wide range of issues including depression, addictions and adjusting to life at home or school. For hours and more information call 970-665-7922.
Grand River Health Student Health Center offers affordable care that is available to students and staff of Garfield County School District No. Re-2 in Rifle. No student will ever be denied services because of inability to pay and fees may be waived if necessary. If patients do not have insurance, only a $20 flat fee for the office visit is collected.
Grand River Health Student Health Center in Rifle is made possible by a grant from the Colorado Health Foundation and community partnerships that include Community Advisory Committees, Garfield School District No. Re-2 for Rifle, Silt & New Castle and Colorado West Mental Health Services.
