Bethel Middle School will be housing a medical, dental and behavioral health clinic for students throughout Bethel School District starting this fall.

Without a hospital in the school district and limited public transportation, students often spend an entire day out of school to get needed medical help. This initiative reverses the situation and brings the medical services to where the students are - in school. The clinic will be run entirely by Community Health Care and involves no taxpayer funds, thanks to a grant from Kaiser Permanente. Community Health Care provides services for those that have insurance or not, with a sliding scale of payment options. District employees may also use this clinic if they wish.
