The Springfield City School District will open a School Based Health Center (SBHC) to support the health needs of the District's students, parents and the Springfield community, with Rocking Horse Community Health Center as the health center's provider of services.

The idea to create a SBHC was derived from community feedback regarding ‘Access to Care’ that was given during the design of the District’s most recent Strategic Plan. Research shows that student attendance and grades improve in school districts where a SBHC is present. 

The multi-million dollar health center will be housed at Springfield High School and is expected to open in Fall 2024.

“This health center will provide quality and convenient medical care for many of our students and families in ways that have not previously been available,” said SCSD Superintendent Dr. Bob Hill. “We know there are correlations between the physical health of a community and its stability, so we are excited to see and measure the many ripple effects that this clinic will have on our classrooms and overall student performance. Thank you to our partners for prioritizing the health of our students and community.” 

Dr. Robert F. Hill, SCSD Superintendent
