"Educating for the future, Training for a career, Developing a community"
Gilmer County School Based Health will be doing Sports Physicals at Gilmer County High School in the School Based Health Clinic on Tuesday June 6th, Wednesday June 7th, and Thursday June 8th, 8am-6pm. Parents need to provide proof of Well Child Check and immunizations if done with a provider outside of Minnie Hamilton Health System. It is important that your child have an annual Well Child Check (including any needed immunizations). Please make all arrangements to have your child’s Well Child Check performed prior to the sports physical. If a Well Child Check has not been performed within the previous 12 months, or if your child needs immunizations, we will schedule a follow up appointment for your child. If you have insurance, it will be billed for the sports physical, any remaining amount will not be the responsibility of the patient/parent/guarantor, only if scheduling the sports physical on one of the above-specified dates. Appointments MUST be made in advance. If you have any questions or wish to schedule an appointment, please call 304-462-3415 or 304-462-7322. Forms can be picked up at the School Based Health Office, Minnie Hamilton Health Systems, Go-Mart, Gil-Co and Rite Aid.
