Aurora Public Schools recently hosted a grand opening celebration for the district's fourth school-based health center!
Located at Gateway High School, the Olympian Wellness Center provides comprehensive, affordable and accessible medical and behavioral health services for all APS students and their siblings. The clinic operates out of the on-line/ROTC building just south of the Gateway's main building.
Patients can be seen for annual check-ups/physicals, immunizations, chronic condition (ex: asthma) management, acute illness (ex: strep throat), one-on-one behavioral health sessions and more. Most insurances are accepted and assistance is available for the uninsured.
The Olympian Wellness Center was made possible through a generous grant from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, as well as partnerships with Every Child Pediatrics and Aurora Mental Health. As noted in our APS 2020: Shaping the Future strategic plan, we believe community partnerships provide vital resources and opportunities for students and families.
We are honored and thankful to partner with such valuable organizations to help every APS student shape a successful future.
