Northern Oswego County Health Service, Inc. on October 16 will open the Mexico Middle School-Based Health Center.
The SBHC will provide primary care services to Mexico Middle School students including the treatment of illness, minor injuries, and chronic health issues, such as asthma and hay fever.
Comprehensive physical exams and immunizations will also be offered.
The SBHC will also provide behavioral health services, including individual and group counseling.
Primary care services will be provided by Nurse Practitioner Adrienne Brimmer.
Brimmer joined NOCHSI in early 2013.
She completed her nurse practitioner training with a Master’s of Science Degree in Nursing from Upstate University College of Nursing in Syracuse, where she also earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing.
Brimmer is joined by Medical Assistant Dianne McDermott.
McDermott brings several years of experience from NOCHSI’s Pulaski Middle Senior High School-Based Health Center.
The SBHC will be open during school hours and offer both walk-in and scheduled appointments.
All services provided to students are coordinated with the student’s primary care provider and/or backed-up from physicians among NOCHSI’s health center sites.
All Mexico Middle School students are eligible to enroll in the SBHC.
Enrollment applications can be picked up at the SBHC or downloaded at www.pulaskihealthcenter.org
