School-Based Health Centers

The Deschutes County School Based Health Centers (SBHC) provide affordable, convenient health care and health education to children under 21 years of age who live in the Bend / La Pine, Redmond, or Sisters school districts. The SBHCs seek to support and achieve improved health management for students and their families, thereby decreasing the barriers of poor health to school success.

By providing routine and basic health care to the student community, the SBHCs can relieve families of the hardships associated with traveling 60 miles or more to the next-nearest health care option, often at the expense of work and school time. In addition, the SBHCs serve all eligible students regardless of insurance status or ability to pay, which means that more students can have access to care they might not otherwise receive.


The SBHCs provides several treatment and prevention services, including:

  • Wellness check-ups
  • Sick-child care
  • Immunizations (shots)
  • Sports physicals
  • Asthma clinics

These services are provided by licensed nurse practitioners who specialize in child and family care.


Any child, newborn through 20 years of age living in the Bend/La Pine, Redmond or Sisters school districts is welcome to receive care at the SBHCs. This includes Head Start and grades K-12, as well as home-schooled and home-tutored students. All eligible children must complete a registration form, along with necessary consent forms, prior to being seen at the clinic.

We will bill insurance when provided, and care services can be billed based on a sliding scale. Immunizations are charged on a flat scale. No child will be denied service due to inability to pay.
