About McMinnville School Based Health Center (SBHC):
We all know that healthy kids learn better. When you are sick or in pain, it's hard to concentrate on school. SBHCs ensure that kids can get the care they need, without missing much class time.
SBHCs are a unique health care model for comprehensive physical, mental and preventive health services provided to youth and adolescents on school property. With easy access to health care in a school setting, SBHCs reduce barriers such as cost, transportation, and concerns that often keep children and youth from seeking the health services they need. McMinnville SBHC provides a full range of physical, mental and preventative health services to all students, regardless of their ability to pay.

Where is McMinnville SBHC and how do we contact you?
McMinnville SBHC is at 1500 NE Baker St., McMinnville, OR 97128 (in the old district administrative building). You can come by, contact us via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), call (503) 565-5300, text (503) 302-3248, or call our main office at (503) 474-3600.
Who would I (or my child) see at the SBHC?
The staff of the clinic include a receptionist/medical assistant every school day from 8am to 1pm (though in staff meeting Wednesdays from 8-9am) and counselors from Yamhill County Family and Youth as above. Nurse practitioners (see our staff page for Sunrise Family Clinic) and a dental hygienist are the providers otherwise seen, and their schedules vary. If a nurse practitioner is not available when you/your child needs an appointment, you may be offered an appointment across town at the main Sunrise clinic.
Who can be seen?
Students in the McMinnville school district, regardless of insurance.
What about billing?
McMinnville SBHC wants patients to receive the care they need, regardless of ability to pay. We do not refuse care for inability to pay. For physical health, we are required to follow applicable billing laws and rules (which means co-pays and deductibles typically apply per our contracts with insurance companies), but we accept most insurances, and a sliding scale and hardship applications are available for all, with or without insurance. We won't turn a student away because they don't have the money to pay. We are also happy to coordinate with or direct people to available local free and low cost resources (such as McMinnville Free Clinic) as needed.
For mental health, a special grant covers the salary of the provider, so no fees are charged to parents.
For dental health, grants cover most care as well. Referrals are also available to a local dentist if issues are found.
Students between the ages of 12 and 19 who visit the SBHC may be asked to complete an anonymous survey after their visit. The survey asks about the student’s satisfaction and experience at the SBHC, as well as some general questions about their physical and mental health status. Students can refuse to take the survey and this will not affect their ability to get care at the SBHC. To see a copy of the survey or if you have questions about the survey, please contact the SBHC State Program Office at email@example.com.
