Yellville-Summit Health Center now open to the public
The school-based Yellville-Summit Health Center has opened its doors to
the general public. A partnership between Yellville-Summit School System
and Baxter Regional Medical Center, the clinic first opened in January
and was originally only available for students, staff, faculty and families.
The Yellville-Summit Health Center (YSHC) is located inside Yellville-Summit
High School. The Yellville School System was one of seven schools in Arkansas
to be awarded a 5-year, $500,000 grant as part of the School Based Health
Center Initiative to provide increased access to high quality healthcare
for students. The grant money came from collected tax revenues from the
sale of tobacco products within the state of Arkansas.
Dr. Shawn Bogle of the Baxter Regional Ahrens Clinic is the Medical Director
of the YSHC. Clinic employees provided by Baxter Regional Medical Center
include Kapra Stuffelbeam, MS, CHES, Clinic Manager, and Kathy "Suzie"
Lawless, APRN and Mika S. Douglas, APRN.
While appointments are encouraged, clinic practitioners will see walk-in
patients. Currently during the Summer months, the clinic is open from
8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Mondays and Tuesdays. When school is back in session,
YSHC will be open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
