The Patuxent Valley Middle School-Based Wellness Center is a partnership between Howard County Health Department and Howard County Public School System. School Wellness Centers do not replace students' regular health care providers in the community. By providing some health care at school we can help parents stay at work and help students stay at school or more quickly return to school. There is no co-pay or fee for visits at the Wellness Center. The first page of the enrollment packet has more information about the Wellness Center.
Our Nurse Practitioner can provide the following services:
• Assessment, diagnosis and treatment of acute illness and injuries, including labs and prescriptions if needed
• Preventive care including physical exams, immunizations, health screenings and education
• Management of some stable chronic illnesses such as asthma
