Deaconess Associations Foundation awards grant to open Deaconess Health Check at Fairfield School-Based Health Center

The Deaconess Associations Foundation and Primary Health Solutions, a Butler County-based organization that operates federally qualified health centers, celebrated their partnership with an official dedication event and unveiling of the new Deaconess Health Check at Fairfield City Schools’ Fairfield School-Based Health Center on January 14, 2016.

The new Fairfield School-Based Health Center provides access to primary medical, dental, vision and behavioral health services to students, their families and staff at Fairfield City Schools.

“Deaconess Health Check was created to fill a gap in community-based primary care, and is designed to provide and improve healthcare for at-risk patients where it is needed most,” said Tony Woods, chairman of Deaconess Associations, Inc. “We know that providing children with access to quality healthcare services improves their opportunities for academic success, so it’s critical to extend these services to more kids in Greater Cincinnati.”

“We’re glad to partner with Primary Health Solutions, Fairfield City Schools, and all the other partner organizations to make this much-needed facility a reality,” Woods said.

The facility was also made possible with grants from Interact for Health, Sears Optical and Delta Dental Foundation contributed to support the vital services of the center.

The center will improve access to care for all children within the district, regardless of their insurance carrier or lack of insurance. Center staff will be available to assist families with insurance enrollment, if uninsured. Services will not be provided without parental consent.
