Nevitt-Forest Elem. To Open Health Clinic Inside The School Nevitt-Forest Elem. To Open Health Clinic Inside The School

Nevitt-Forest Elementary School in Anderson District 5 will be home to the Upstate's first health clinic, inside an elementary school.

The community asked for the much needed clinic, instead of new ball fields. The clinic is set to open in September. Initially, the clinic will treat students, during school hours. If that's successful, the clinic will expand to serve the community, primarily those on Medicare or Medicaid.

The clinic will be located in a wing added to the school a couple of years ago. There will be a separate entrance and exit, so there's no security risk to the students.

Superintendent Betty Bagley told the "Independent Mail" that this is "...a win-win proposition in that the students at Nevitt-Forest Elementary will have a home for medical service." 

Anderson District 5 is working out an agreement with AnMed, who will be responsible for staff, services, billing, medical supplies and equipment. The school district will pay for beds, seating and cabinets. That money will come from a $52,000 grant.

Nursing departments at Clemson and Anderson Universities already expressed interest in their students using the clinic.

Anderson County Councilmen were concerned about what will happen, if the project fails. In that case, Bagley said, the school would use the space for more classrooms.
