EUGENE, ORE.-- PeaceHealth and the Eugene 4-J School District have teamed up to make sure students have easy access to healthcare.


The district has two health centers, at Churchill and North Eugene high schools.

KEZI 9 News toured the newly renovated center at Churchill on Thursday. 

Under the new partnership, the school district will provide the clinic spaces, while PeaceHealth will provide medical staffing. Lane County Public Health will provide mental health services.

"When we had the opportunity to step in and help to continue those vital services that kids need, both mental and physical health services we jumped at the opportunity to provide that," David Duffey with Peacehealth Group said. 

They offer physicals, immunizations, mental health assessments and lab testing.

They will not turn away a student who needs treatment, regardless of their ability to pay.
