CCPS, Bluegrass Community Health Center announce partnership

Clark County Public Schools has officially announced a partnership to provide a variety of healthcare services to all students and staff.

Located at the CCPS building at 100 Vaught Road, the Bluegrass Community Health Center Clark County School Clinic opened for business Monday, providing health screenings, oral screenings, and immunizations including covid and flu vaccines.

CCPS and BCHC representatives joined with community leaders today to cut the ribbon for the facility that opened Monday.

“Being able to bring a clinic to Winchester has been a goal of ours for several years,” says Dr. Steve Wrightson, CEO of BCHC. “The opportunity arose that we could do a clinic here in Clark County with the school system and we thought it was just the perfect marriage of what we wanted to provide for the community.”

Providing the same comprehensive service as a primary car physician’s office, the clinic has four employees.

“We want to be your medical home,” said RN Donna Agee, clinical operations manager at BCHC.

To seek care, contact Christy Lopez, health intake clerk, and come in to be treated by LeShonda Lyle (CMA), Malonie Clayborne (CMA), and/or Tara Cruse (APRN).

“This clinic is another service we can offer to overcome barriers for all students,” said Christy Fulks Bush, CCPS director of pupil personnel and student support services. “We are so thrilled to make this long-time dream a reality.”

 

Smoke Signals Editor-in-Chief Cameron Anderson and Video Editor Kendall Barnes attended the ribbon cutting ceremony today and covered the event on behalf of GRC and CCPS.
