Viking Wellness Center
The 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, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. for CASD students ages 10-21.

For your convenience, we have made our forms digital. There is an updated section on the first page of our consent form to notify you of the availability of telehealth services with our providers.
Please click on the forms below and save them to your computer/device. Then open and complete them, including adding a digital signature or initials to each page. Please save again to your device to store the information you have added, then print and return to your child's school office or to the Wellness Center.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment.
