Billings Public Schools, Billings Clinic and Riverstone Health is teaming up to bring health services to Orchard Elementary school students and their families.
Dr. Eric Arzubi told the Billings School District 2 board a school-based health clinic will be created inside Orchard Elementary to provide primary care and mental health services. Dr. Arzubi says this model has been around for 40 years, but our state only has two clinics like the one opening in Orchard Elementary.
Nationwide there are more than 2,000 similar in-school clinics.
It will open in May. Dr. Arzubi says the new program will make receiving health care much more convenient.
KULR-8 will have more with Dr. Arzubi and Riverstone Health on the pilot program later this week.
