• School Based and Student Focused Care 
    Whether illness strikes during the school day or a chronic issue requires long-term assistance, Blackstone Valley Tech and the Milford Regional Medical Center are providing students with the care they deserve. 
     
    For nearly 15 years, the Milford Regional Medical Center’s School Based Health Center located in the BVT health suite has been collaborating with the BVT School Nurses and Counselors to treat and prevent health and social problems that can interfere with a student’s academic success. While insurance companies are billed for a student’s care, there is no fee applied to BVT families and no student will ever be denied services for financial reasons. The following services are available through our School Based Health Center: 
     
    Primary Care
    • Diagnosis and treatment of minor and acute medical conditions
    • Physical exams for sports, school, and employment
    • Information about communicable diseases with testing and treatment (if needed)
    • Prevention of pregnancy, including abstinence (Contraceptives will not be distributed 
       on the campus)
    • Consultation with Primary Care Provider to provide onsite assistance with chronic illness. 
       Example: asthma, diabetes, etc.
    • Referrals for health services which cannot be provided on site
     
    Mental Health Counseling/Case Management
    • Counseling related to adolescent issues
    • Mental health evaluations
    • Individual, group, and family counseling
    • Emergency assessments, including referrals
     
    Nutrition Education
    • Counseling, including diet and weight control
    • Nutrition assessments
    • Diabetes support
      
    Not only do these services help BVT students receive medical care without sacrificing an entire day of school, but the MRMC School Based Health Center also provides continuity of care by coordinating with a student’s parents, primary care physician, and other healthcare providers. As a center serving an adolescent population, continuity of care can go a long way toward helping a teenager build trust with his or her healthcare provider. 
      
     
     
    Before a BVT student can receive services at the MRMC School Based Health Center, they must be enrolled in the program by a parent or guardian and fill out a consent form. For more information, contact:
