What is the Student Based Health Center?
Grand River Hospital District has received a grant from Colorado Health Foundation, which allowed the organization to open Grand River Student Health Center for students and staff of Garfield County School District #16 in Parachute. The Center opened in the fall of 2010 and is located in the Center for Family Learning in Parachute.

Possible services include: physical exams, immunizations, routine lab tests and throat cultures, prescriptions and medications, care for acute injury and illness, management of chronic conditions such as asthma, parent and student wellness education, and referrals to community providers and agencies.

Grand River Student Health Center provides services to everyone regardless of ability to pay. To help sustain this community service, private insurance, Medicaid, and CHP will be billed. Any applicable co-payments and deductibles will be collected from families.

A parent or guardian must sign a consent form before a student may use the Center. Student visits to the Center are confidential. Information is not shared unless permitted by the student and/or parent. The exceptions are life-threatening situations.

Grand River Student Health Center’s hours of operation are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8:30-4:30.
