Viking Wellness Center

VWC - Logo - for Home PageThe Crawford AuSable School District, in partnership with District Health Department #10, 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.

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.

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.

2019-2020 sports physicals available 

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.

We bill insurance as a Well Child (preventative) exam, and most insurances cover one of these per year. If you would like to see your primary care doctor for a well-child visit, we accept donations in place of billing your insurance. Services will not be denied if you are unable to make a donation. We can also assist you in Medicaid enrollment if desired. 

We can also help families enroll in Medicaid.

You can stop by the VWC, call 989-344-3540 or 989-710-5050 or email rcarr@casdk12.net  to schedule an appointment.
