Licking Heights, Licking Memorial partner for student health center

It takes a community to build a healthy, strong, productive student body — which is why Licking Memorial Health Systems (LMHS) is partnering with Licking Heights Local Schools to provide greater health care access to students through a secure student and staff Health Center at Licking Heights inside the high school.

“School-based health clinics are an effective strategy to ensure students are in school, healthy, and ready to learn,” said Mitch Tom, Director of Pupil Services at Licking Heights Local Schools. “Our goal with the Licking Memorial Health Center at Licking Heights is to increase access to primary care and behavioral health, which improve health equity for vulnerable populations in our community.”

The Licking Memorial Health Center at Licking Heights is expected to open for the 2023-2024 school year. Hours will be 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday all year long. It is located in what was a void storage area in the high school which has been renovated to serve as the new clinic. Construction and operation will not impact existing or future classroom space.
