Fetter Health Care Network (Fetter), a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), has expanded its partnership with Charleston County School District (CCSD) to provide school-based health care services to families in five local schools. For 4 years, Fetter has served students and staff in several CCSD schools, and its program will now provide health care services to the families of these students through the use of mobile medical and dental units.
“As a community health center, our job is to identify areas of need within our communities and go where people need it most,” said Dr. Powers. “As these families and staff are in and out of our schools each day, this is an opportunity to provide easy access to quality care that will meet a variety of health care needs.”
“Fetter Health Care Network is an esteemed partner that continuously provides reliable and essential health and dental care to our students, families and community. We are immensely grateful for all Fetter does in service to children and look forward to growing our relationship with them in the future,” states Dr. Gerrita Postlewait, Charleston County School District Superintendent.
For the 2021 – 2022 school year, Fetter will be offering a range of services at partnering schools, including pediatric and adult primary care, dental services, health screenings, immunizations, sports physicals, case management, specialist referrals and behavioral health services.
