Bridging The Gap Between Health and Education

Healthy Children Make Better Learners

Integrated Health Services, Inc.

Integrated Health Services provides evidence-based comprehensive and preventive health care services in school settings to the full age continuum of students, including preschoolers, school-age children, and adults. At IHS, our mission is to improve students’ potential to achieve and maintain wellness by reducing and addressing barriers to care. Our School Based Health Centers (SBHCs) primarily serve uninsured and underinsured students and families.

The SBHCs yield measurable improvements in students’ behavioral, physical, and dental health outcomes, and reduce the amount of out-of-school time to address healthcare needs.​

Anti-Racism Statement

We at IHS stand in solidarity with those working to end racism.
