A message to parents from our Dean of Student Activities
All insurance is accepted. No insurance? We will help you get insurance or use a sliding scale fee system as applicable. No student will ever be turned away because of inability to pay or lack of insurance.
The Coppin State University College of Health Professions Helene Fuld School of Nursing Coppin Clinic at Saint Frances Academy, a nurse-managed clinic located on Saint Frances Academy campus, is a primary care facility which is operated by the Helene Fuld School of Nursing. The Center provides readily accessible healthcare to Saint Frances Academy administration, faculty, students, staff and residents of the neighborhood. Services of the Center emphasize health promotion and prevention of disease.
The goal of the Center is to provide access while removing barriers to care with an end outcome on optimal healthcare outcomes. Services provided include physicals, Women’s health services, immunizations and management of acute and/or chronic health problems. Services are provided by nurse practitioners, faculty and students of the Helene Fuld School of Nursing, and in some instances, by a physician. All professional personnel are properly licensed by the State of Maryland. The clinic serves as a clinical placement for both graduate and undergraduate students.
Compliance with immunizations is required by Maryland state law and no student will be admitted to school without up to date immunization status. Immunizations are available in the health center.
Prior to engaging in sports, all students must have a sports physical which is good for one year. They may be completed at the health center or at the student’s doctors, but a copy of the physical must be provided to the Health Center. No student will be allowed to compete without a clearance to play sports.
All insurance is accepted. If a student does not have medical insurance, the staff of the center will assist the student and parent to obtain health insurance. No student will ever be turned away because of lack of insurance.
Saint Frances Academy empowers urban youth with an ability to overcome obstacles in the face of hopelessness as they embrace opportunities to realize, develop, and share their potential within God’s earthly family.
