It's School-Based Health Center Awareness Month!

In the early 1990’s, Pendleton Community Care opened the first SBHCs in West Virginia and paved the way for a broader statewide effort. In 1994, the SBHC component was piloted through implementation grants

awarded by the WV Bureau for Public Health and the Claude Benedum Worthington Foundation in 12 counties.


Twenty years later, West Virginia continues to expand its growing network of SBHCs across the state. We're at 98 and counting! The number has nearly doubled just over the last four years. It's a true testament to the valuable services these centers provide. Making health care accessible and affordable for all of the children in our state continues to be WVSBHA's mission, and we hope you will celebrate this milestone with us. 


Check out George Stablein, MD's op-ed in the Charleston Gazette, and read our 2014 Annual Report. 




The mission of the West Virginia School-Based Health Assembly (WVSBHA) is to advance comprehensive health care in school settings through responsive policies, practices, and partnerships. Formed in 1995, WVSBHA serves as the lead membership organization and unified voice in the state for the advancement of school-based health care.

Through collaboration of individuals and organizations that represent and support school-based health centers and services, WVSBHA supports the belief that all West Virginia children and youth have a fundamental right to access and receive comprehensive primary health care and prevention services.
