Who We Are
School-based health centers are clinics inside schools that provide easy access to affordable health care for students.
Loyola’s School-Based Health Center (SBHC) at Proviso East High School has been serving Proviso East students for 14 years. The health center is supported by federal and state grants and gifts from private foundations. Proviso East High School partners with us to provide space for the clinic, which is located on the first floor in Room 86B.
Loyola faculty, staff, and health care students provide health care and health education tailored to the needs of adolescents. The SBHC is fully accredited by the Illinois Department of Public Health and meets all standards for quality in primary care and behavioral health.
