Lessie More Elementary School-Based Health Center is one of 17 Christus School-Based Health Centers. Christus is collaborating with Access Health Louisiana to operate and govern its school-based health center. Access Health Louisiana ranks in the top 10% of all community health centers in the United States for quality according to the Health Resources and Services Administration. The Lessie Moore Elementary School-Based Health Center is located in Pineville off Highway 167. AHL provides both primary care and behavioral health services for this clinic.
Nurse Practitioner Carol Hirchak provides primary care for students including acute care, immunizations, and sports physicals. She works along with Registered Nurse Lynda Merchant. Licensed Clinical Social Worker Joy Taylor provides behavioral health counseling at the clinic. She sees students for a variety of reasons including stress and anger management, anxiety, trauma, depression, and bullying. Therapy is offered on an individual or group basis. Students can visit Ms. Taylor by going to the health center. The health center is supported by Secretary Amanda Parker. Parents can also call and request that their child be seen for care. All students must have a current consent and enrollment form on file at the health center in order to be seen by medical staff. Consent and enrollment forms are sent home at the beginning of the year; however, parents may sign their child up for services at any time during the school year.
Co-payments are waived for all students and faculty/staff enrolled at our SBHC. Commercial insurance including Medicaid and Medicare are accepted. Students who are uninsured can also receive care with a consent and enrollment form on file with the health center. Any medications prescribed for your child may be filled through the Access Health Louisiana Pharmacy and delivered to your home. We also work with nearby Walgreens and CVS pharmacies and can have most prescriptions filled at a discounted rate.
Students needing emergency care after hours, please call 9-1-1.
