Denver Health School-Based Clinic

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.

Contact Us: As we adapt to meet our community needs during the COVID-19 response, we request that all patients call ahead to learn how to access care at 720-423-8378. 

Hours: Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.


Telehealth appointments are available for East School-Base Health Center Patients.

Telehealth appointments are a convenient, secure way to speak to your Denver Health provider from the comfort of your own home. At this time, most telehealth appointments will be telephone visits. Limited appointments are available as video visits, conducted via a smartphone, tablet or a computer with a camera.

Parental Consent

A parent or guardian must sign a consent form before their child may use health center services. Once this is done, the child can use the health center at any time during the current school year. Supporting family communication is a main goal of the health center. Clinic staff encourages patients to discuss health care with their parents.

Sign the consent form, and sign up for the East clinic in English or Spanish.

Cost & Insurance

There is no charge to the patient or their family for services offered in the health center. Patients will not have to pay co-pays, deductibles, or fees to be seen. Insurance may be billed but without cost to the family. Community Health Care Advisors are available to assist students and families with questions, eligibility, and enrollment into the healthcare programs.
