Denver Health’s School-Based Health Center (SBHC) at East High School offers no-cost healthcare. Services are available to any Denver Public Schools student or child that attends a DPS affiliated Early Childhood Education center within Denver County. The East SBHC offers convenient care that limits the amount of time students are out of class and parent/guardians have to be off work. Students are able to get same day or next day appointments.

During COVID, we’re offering in-person or telephone / video appointments. We are taking every step to keep our clinics clean and patients safe.
