What We Do

Our Staff

Our Services

The Oakridge Health Center is a full-service primary medical care provider including urgent medical care, mental health counseling, and dental health services.

Medical Services

The Oakridge Health Center is happy to be your child’s “medical home” with parent consent.  We honor and refer to existing primary care providers.  Services include but are not limited to wellness check-ups, injuries, asthma care, influenza shots, common cold, COVID testing/immunizations, strep throat, sports physicals and many other medical related care concerns.

Mental Health Services

Our mental health providers offer individual counseling therapy for students in elementary and secondary schools.  

Dental Services

The Oakridge Health Center is happy to be your dental home. We also provide mobile preventative services at the elementary schools. If your child needs treatment you can go to your own dental provider.  If your child doesn’t have a dentist, we will be happy to become your child’s dental home.

The Oakridge Health Center has a grant to cover medical and mental health copays for children ages 5-21. We will accept all types of insurance. If families don’t have insurance, the Oakridge Health Center can help you coordinate through the marketplace. We also offer a sliding fee scale program. Copays are billed for dental services provided at the Oakridge Health Center.

Parent Consent

The Oakridge Health Center can see children for sickness or acute illness without a parent present, as long as there is a signed consent on file. The Oakridge Health Center can see your child only once with parent verbal permission. This permission can be given over the phone to the Oakridge Health Center staff.  School staff cannot assist parents with this . Parents will need to call the Oakridge Health Center themselves.


The Oakridge Health Center has to abide by all HIPAA laws for privacy and can not tell school staff why a child has accessed their facility. Health records are not given to school staff without appropriate releases signed by a parent.

Art of the Heart

The Advanced Art Students at Oakridge High School were invited to create a collaborative mural in ceramics for the new Oakridge Health Center. Twenty six students created a variety of themed human-like hearts with clay and glaze with some mixed media accents. Along with their teacher’s three sample hearts a total of 29 hearts are in the installation honoring donor’s contributions for the center.  The Grand Opening on January 13th, 2016 displayed the collaborative installation to the community and the artists.  The Oakridge Health Center would not be possible without our generous donors.  We are very fortunate to have these donors partner with Oakridge and Hackley Community Care to make this health center happen for kids.  Check out our High School Art of the Heart project commemorating our appreciation for our donors.
