What kinds of services are offered?

  • Our services focus on prevention and include immunizations, asthma management, reproductive health care, and mental health counseling.
  • The staff is trained to understand and treat the special health care needs of teens. Our team includes a nurse practitioner, mental health counselor and office coordinator. They work closely with the school nurse.
  • Our center aims to serve young people who are uninsured and underinsured-those who have nowhere else to go to get medical care and counseling.  However, many families with insurance prefer them because of the convenience and service.
  • We can coordinate student care with community health care providers when available and appropriate.
  • Referral to community resources is also available.

The Nathan Hale/Jane Addams Teen Health Center is sponsored and staffed by Kaiser Permanente and in partnership with Public Health Seattle & King County. Seattle’s school-based health centers are funded in part by the voters of Seattle through the Families and Education Levy.
