Hood River Valley High School Health Center
Hood River Valley High School Health Center Team
In 2015, One Community Health was honored to open its first School-Based Health Center. Located within Hood River Valley High School, this center was in direct response to community need and the key partners who contributed to make it possible.
The Hood River Valley High School Health Center is backed by a “small but mighty” team that includes Lynne Frost, SBHC Administrator and Medical Director; Heather Nielsen, Licensed Professional Counselor; Sarah Dang, Family Nurse Practitioner; Christina Ayala, Team Assistant; and Melody Farrell, Certified Medical Assistant.
This welcome team and resource operates during the school year, serving all students within the Hood River County School District. All high school students, as well as all other students living within the Hood River County School District, are welcome at the School-Based Health Center.
Please note: Based on Oregon law, students may self-consent for the following care:
• General primary and dental care beginning at age 15

Parental Notification – Hood River Valley High School Health Center Satisfaction Survey: Students between the ages of 12 and 19 who visit the school based health center (SBHC) may be asked to complete an anonymous survey after their visit. The survey asks about the student’s satisfaction and experience at the School-Based Health Center (SBHC), as well as some general questions about their physical and mental health status. Students can refuse to take the survey and this will not affect their ability to get care at this SBHC. To see a copy of the survey, please go to the “SBHC Data Requirements” link on http://healthoregon.org/sbhc. If you have questions about the survey, please contact the SBHC State Program Office at email@example.com.
