Congressman Hanna meets with Bassett School-Based Health Officials


SHERBURNE – In 2012, Bassett Healthcare Network’s School-Based Health Program expects to handle over 26,000 student visits at its 19 school-based health centers (SBHCs). The majority of those visits will be for primary care, but 30 percent will be mental health visits. That statistic may be surprising to some, and it’s one Chief of Pediatrics Dr. Philip Heavner shared with Congressman Richard Hanna recently when he visited Bassett’s school-based health centers in the Sherburne-Earlville School District. Last year, Bassett’s school-based health (SBH) staff handled 4,000 visits in the Sherburne-Earlville schools.
