Stephens Memorial Hospital provides high-quality health care in SAD #17 at school-based health centers (SBHCs) - augmenting school nurse services. Two SBHCs are available to students at Oxford Hills Middle School (grades 7-8) and Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School (grades 9-12). SBHCs provide care while keeping students in school and learning. This model of care significantly reduces ER visits, absenteeism, and the burden on parents to miss work to seek care for children.

Our Team

Dr. Kate Herlihy, Board-Certified Pediatrician, Lisa Letourneau-Bonn, APRN-PNP, and Emily Yenco LCSW, all of Western Maine Pediatrics, provide care at the SBHC. In addition, our team collaborates with the student's parents, primary care physician, and school nurses. 

Dr. Kate Herlihy of Western Maine Pediatrics is the program's Medical Advisor.
