BELLEVUE (KPTM) - Access to medical care at Bryan High School is becoming easier than ever thanks to the grand opening of a new health center.
Inside the school now sits a room that looks almost like a carbon copy of a doctor's office. From blood work to immunizations, the office operated by One World Community Health Center is versatile. It's also cost effective for lower income families.
"It can solve a lot of issues," said Jocelyn Sorto, a senior at the high school. "A flu shot, for example, is half of what it costs at some local stores."
Students who use the health center can also get diagnosed on site, get help with insurance and won't have to miss a beat when it comes to keeping up with schoolwork.
"Now, they can actually just come in, we'll see them and then they can go back to class if they're okay," said Sandra Armas, a full supporter of the new center.
Medical staff at Bryan High School hopes to serve anywhere from 800 to 1,000 students this year alone. They also expect it to be quite busy for the rest of the year as flu season begins to arrive.
