Milwaukee, WI – Cristo Rey Jesuit High School and Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers announced the opening of a new in-school clinic at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in January. Since the Cristo Rey clinic launched, Sixteenth Street has seen students for preventive care, acute care needs, and other general medical services. The visits have taken place both in person and through a telehealth option. Further, Sixteenth Street provides COVID education and conversation through virtual meetings to staff, students, and families.

“Having a health clinic within the school is a win-win-win: Students have access to high quality health care when they need it. Parents benefit because they don’t have to take time off of work to take their child to the doctor. And, schools benefit because students spend more time in the classroom,” said Dr. Pam Wilson, Vice President of Medical Affairs at Sixteenth Street. “We are humbled and pleased to bring ready-access of health services on site, and are looking forward to supporting healthy students and families at Cristo Rey Jesuit.”

“To have students be successful academically, they must also be supported and given the resources to be successful in school and at home,” said Cristo Rey Jesuit High School nurse Amalie Hansen. “Sixteenth Street Clinic will allow access to healthcare in the school. This partnership shows the commitment CRJ has to providing a continuum of support and care for students and staff.”
