Wellness Center at WLHS

The Howard County Health Department and Howard County Public Schools have partnered to open a school-based wellness center at Wilde Lake High School. 

A completed enrollment packet is required for student use of the Wellness Center (except for services covered under the Maryland Minor Consent Laws):

The School-based wellness center will be opened two half days a week when school is in session and will offer the following health care services by appointment:

  • Physical exams - annual, sport, camp, and college entry
  • Immunizations
  • Diagnosis and treatment of acute illness and injuries
  • Management of chronic health problems, such as asthma
  • Health education
  • Referrals for services not provided in the school-based wellness center

The center's physicians and nurse practitioners will provide health services only during the school day and will not replace your child's regular health provider.

The center staff will work with a child's regular provider to coordinate care. With parent permission, a copy of a child's visit will be sent to a child's regular provider. A parent's signed consent and completion of the wellness center enrollment packet is required for a student to be enolled and receive services in the school-based wellness center; except for services covered under the Maryland Minor Consent Laws.

The WLHS school-based wellness center will only bill medical assistance and managed care providers. No co-pays or other fees will be collected.

Additional information can be provided and appointments made by contacting Sharon Hobson, the program administrator, at 410-313-7238.
