Yancey County Schools was awarded $500,000 through the Health Resources and Services Administration to fully construct and equip two 1,400 square foot facilities at East Yancey and Cane River middle schools. These facilities will become the new home for the school based health centers and will free up the space currently being used at each school to make new classrooms, offices, etc. The size and the layout of the new space used will be upgraded to provide for improved clinic staffing, enhancement of current services, and the addition of new services. Operating since 1993, the Student Health Centers provide primary and preventative health services, mental health counseling, and nutritional services in a school-setting.
The Student Health Centers are open Monday-Friday from 8:00 am to 3::00 pm.
