Health Center

The Health Center desires for each student with a health concern to seek assistance and establish a relationship of trust with the appropriate health professional. Students are encouraged to be candid about their health history and risk behaviors. The nurses and school physician have the individual student’s health as their primary concern. It is crucial that students and parents report accurate health histories to insure proper treatment. Medical care for student injuries, illnesses and preventive health services are provided by a staff of RN’s and a clinical nurse specialist at St. Stephen’s Health Center, under the direction of Dr. Kerry Rhodes, school physician. The nurses will consult with Dr. Rhodes frequently and, when deemed necessary, send the student to Dr. Rhodes office for medical examination. The nurses also work with the school’s athletic trainers who care for all student-athlete injuries and illnesses under the guidance of orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Doug Elenz of Austin Sports Medicine. Parents will be notified when there are any unusual health concerns.

Services of these specialists are provided on a “fee for service” basis. All routine medical and dental appointments should be arranged prior to the opening of school, on free weekends, or during vacations. If students arrange to see another doctor off campus at the parents’ request, the health center can arrange for transportation. All costs for this service, however, including transportation, must be borne by the parent.
