The new center will open Friday, Jan. 9 inside the school district’s central office complex, next to Southwest High School. It will be the second of its kind in Bexar County. It will offer low-cost primary and urgent care services to students and their siblings. Children will have access to immunizations, sports physicals, patient education and other services.

The impetus behind the decision to create the health center was the recognition that even the best teachers have a tough time engaging students if they are in need of medical care, UHS officials say.
