Hamtramck School Based Health Center

Hamtramck is a small city, approximately 2.5 square miles, located within Detroit, Michigan. There is no city health department or low cost health center and so HSBHC serves as one of the major vaccine providers in the area, particularly for the uninsured. The clinic is easily accessible to city residents by car or foot.

The Children's Hospital of Michigan Hamtramck School-Based Health Center (HSBHC), a collaborative effort between DMC Children’s Hospital of Michigan and Hamtramck Public Schools, provides free health care services to the students of Hamtramck Public Schools.

Located in Hamtramck High School, HSBHC , opened it’s doors in 2000 to address the needs of the large Bosnian and Kosovo refugee populations in Hamtramck at that time. Since then the clinic has served children from over 40 different countries in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East.

While the Hamtramck School-Based Health Center services are available to all Hamtramck Public School students, the focus continues to be on immigrant children, as those children are not eligible for Medicaid coverage, other than Emergency services, in the state of Michigan.

Services include:

  • Immunizations
  • Health care for the uninsured and underinsured
  • Health education
  • Referrals
  • Health insurance enrollment
  • Social work services
  • Community child health and safety events – addressing such issues as car and bike safety, nutrition, influenza, oral health and vision care
