KCSD partners with St. Elizabeth for Virtual School-Based Health Program

The KCSD is working with St. Elizabeth Physicians (SEP) to bring virtual school-based health programs into our schools.  This program can be used by students and staff.  

Virtual School-Based Health Programs can be used to provide high-quality healthcare using video technology.  KCSD Health Office staff will be the liaison with SEP to schedule and lead the video visits with SEP medical staff.  If needed, the virtual visits will be enhanced using a USB otoscope and stethoscope for the provider to hear and see in real time.  Parents will be able to join the visit in person or real time via video link.  If medication or testing is needed, such as a strep or COVID-19 test, it can be ordered by the provider at the time of the virtual visit. 

The link found here for the attached flyer provides more Virtual School-Based Health Program information. Electronic or paper documents for consent and new-patient need to be completed for the initial visit. For access to new patient packet, consent form, and to view Frequently Asked Questions, you can also visit SEP website at https://www.stelizabethphysicians.com/schoolhealth or email VirtualHealthCenter@stelizabeth.com. 

Health Services is excited to partner with SEP and bring this opportunity to our community. This program is currently available at Fort Wright, River Ridge, Simon Kenton, Summit View, Twenhofel and White's Tower. All other schools are available by request. We welcome your feedback in this pilot program and look forward to bringing this opportunity to all schools. The roll out to other schools is dependent on the arrival of technology and the return of in-person instruction.
