Health Center WestSAISD and University Health System are collaborating to operate a health center at Tafolla Middle School to serve students and campus employees from schools in the West Side Lanier High School feeder. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Feb. 25, 2020.

The center will provide care for the following health issues:

• Sports physicals
• Health education on nutrition, disease and injury prevention
• Medication prescriptions as needed

Parents can make appointments by calling (210) 644-2000.

The cost of a visit will depend on a patient’s insurance status at the time of the visit. Private insurance, CHIP, Medicaid, and cash payment arrangements are all accepted. Health Center West staff can assist patients that are underinsured or uninsured make an account with Bexar County’s CareLink financial assistance program.

Health Center West is located on the Tafolla campus, behind the main school building in a stand-alone portable building.

SAISD and University Health System plan to open a second health center, Health Center East, at Davis Middle School later this school year. Currently, University Health System also has health centers in Harlandale, Southside and Southwest ISDs.

In addition to the support from the Health System, in collaboration with the SAISD Foundation, the Baptist Health Foundation provided furniture for the waiting room and provider offices for both the West and East clinics, a $40,000 value ($20,000 per clinic).
