School-Based Health Centers

The School-Based Health Center is a unique venture between the Utica City School District and Upstate Family Health Center, Inc. With no out of pocket expense to you, the School-Based Health Center provides comprehensive primary health care services exclusively to enrolled students in participating schools. Staffing includes a full time provider, a supervising physician and a full time licensed practical nurse. We have established three School-Based Health Centers (SBHC) in Utica. An SBHC provides primary care and preventative health care services in school to those enrolled in the program. 

Students must attend one of the three schools listed below and parents must complete an enrollment packet in order to receive healthcare services. Click here for access to the enrollment packet. 

 We offer weekday appointments before, during and after school throughout the school year. We are closed when school is not in session, including holidays and summer break. 

At our School-Based Health Centers we offer:

-Comprehensive physical examinations
