FLORENCE, S.C. — Florence One Schools and HopeHealth partnered to open a new clinic focused on student health care in Brockington Elementary School.
Students, parents, faculty and staff can book appointments at the school-based clinic, which offers primary medical care, immunizations, lab screenings and basic dental work.
“We try to ensure that when we start a full year that every student in the school and every student that attends Florence One Schools here in Timmonsville will have a checkup, a vision screening, and at least two dental cleanings a year,” said Superintendent Richard O’Malley.
A ribbon cutting for the new clinic was held on Thursday.
The Brockington Elementary School’s old central office was converted into patient rooms and offices housing a physician’s assistant, nurse, dentist and optometrist.
