NorthShore Health Centers has opened a school-based health center at La Porte High School. NorthShore’s school-based health center provides comprehensive preventive and primary healthcare services to students for La Porte schools during the school day.
NorthShore/La Porte School Health Center will provide services to students throughout the La Porte District. Students who are ill during the school day, need immunizations, sports physicals, or have other health concerns, can be treated during the school day. A Family Nurse Practitioner is available to provide medical care, minor lab testing and medications as required to treat the La Porte students who may need these services. This service does not replace the school nurse, but allows the nurse practitioner, school nurse, coaches, counselors, classroom teachers, and school principals and their staff to ensure the best possible services are provided to each and every student at La Porte schools.
Written consents signed by parents are required for students before services can be provided by NorthShore/La Porte School Health Center. Some of the services include rapid strep testing, treatment for pink eye, head lice, acne treatment, sports physicals, and assessing and treating injuries and illnesses. If a patient needs a prescription, the Nurse Practitioner can electronically prescribe the medication to the NorthShore Pharmacy or participating 340B pharmacy for quick pharmacy service.
