Viking Wellness Center
The Crawford AuSable School District, in partnership with District Health Department #10, recently received grant funding from the Michigan Department of Education and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to open our Viking Wellness Center, one of 100 adolescent health centers in Michigan.
Location and Hours
Housed in Room C309 of GHS, the Viking Wellness Center is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. for CASD students ages 10-21.
The purpose of a school-based health center is to provide easy access to physical and mental health services and to reduce the time that our students are out of school for appointments, injuries and illnesses. The VWC is unique because students will be seen at the clinic regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay for services.

2018-2019 sports physicals available
We are scheduling sports physicals for 2018-19 as of April 16, 2018. This comprehensive physical, also known as a well-child check, takes 45 minutes and includes an exam, a discussion of at-risk behaviors, immunizations and a sports participation clearance (if one is needed for the upcoming school year). A parent consent form is required; so is an MHSAA sports physical form, which is available on site. The student must have a parent present if no consent is on file.
The VWC accepts all insurances, most of which cover one physical per year. (Whatever the insurance companies pay is accepted as payment in full.) And nobody will be denied services based on an inability to pay.
Call 989-344-3540 or 989-710-5050 to schedule an appointment.
We can also help families enroll in Medicaid.
