Student Health Centers are like having a doctor’s office at school. We offer comprehensive primary and mental health care services to all Multnomah County youth ages 5-18 at no cost.
Even if you don’t attend school, you can still get care. Appointments are recommended but walk-ins are welcome.

Same-day appointments are available and walk-ins are welcome. We reserve half of our appointments for same-day visits so you can see us when you need to. For a shorter wait we recommend you call ahead.
There is never an out-of-pocket cost for our services (no copay, no cost for prescriptions). We take all types of insurance and will see you if you're uninsured.
Our centers are funded by insurance, Medicaid, grants and public funds. Providing your insurance information allows us to bill your insurance so we can serve as many students as possible. If your insurance does not pay for all or part of the cost, you are not responsible for any out-of-pocket costs for services received from us.
If you don’t have health insurance or don’t provide us with this information, we will check to see if you qualify for the Oregon Health Plan or other insurance. This could fully insure your child for medical, dental and emergency services. We strongly encourage you to apply for this coverage.
New Client Forms
To save time, please complete these forms and bring them with you to your appointment.
If you ask in advance, we can mail them to you. You can also pick them up before your appointment, or come at least a half hour before your appointment to fill them out. You're welcome to fax them to the clinic where you’ll be seen.
Sports Physical Forms
You must bring an Oregon Student Activity Association (OSAA) sports physical clearance form that has been filled out and signed by a parent or guardian to your appointment. This form is also available through most school athletic offices.
