Welcome to The School Based Health Center (SBHC) at the Jamestown High School.

What is the Jamestown School Based Health Center (SBHC)?

The Jamestown SBHC is a medical office in the high school, in partnership between the Jamestown Public Schools and The Resource Center. A SBHC provides comprehensive health care services to children in the high school. It can work with your child’s healthcare provider in caring for your child. For children without a primary care provider, the SBHC staff may become that provider.

How does a student receive services?

To receive services, the parent of guardian must complete the registration form. Students who do not have a completed SBHC registration form will not be able to use the SBHC. Registration into the SBHC can be completed at any time.

JHS SBHC received a grant from the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation to purchase an exam table.

The JHS  SBHC is like a doctor’s office in the high school. The JHS SBHC doesn’t take the place of your child’s doctor, but rather  works closely with your child’s doctor to provide quality health care right at the school. The Jamestown High School School Based Health Center is located on the first floor at JHS around the corner from the main office. The JHS SBHC is open from 8:00 a.m. to 3 pm on regular school days. We prefer appointments but walk-ins are welcome anytime.


The JHS SBHC staff includes: a nurse practitioner, a registered nurse, a medical assistant and a medical director. The services that are available at the SBHC include:

  • Physicals for sports, state mandated physicals and work permits.
  • Immunizations, including flu shots.
  • Prescriptions for medications.
  • Assessment and treatment of chronic and acute illnesses like asthma, diabetes, sore throats and coughs.
  • Oral screenings and referrals to dental services.
  • Mental health screenings and referrals for counseling and other mental health services.

There is no out of pocket expense for services provided at the SBHC for you or your family. The SBHC bills the child’s insurance. The parent is responsible for any prescriptions, lab work, xrays or any other testing or services not provided at the SBHC.

If you are interested in enrolling your child in the JHS SBHC, please contact Debbie Piotrowski, FNP, Nurse Practitioner at (716) 483-4373
