School-Based Health Center (SBHC)

The Dr. Joel and Carol Bower School-Based Health Center was founded in 2004 as a partnership between Nevada State College School of Nursing and Basic High School to address significant unmet health needs of Henderson children. Operated by the NSC School of Nursing and located on the Basic High School Campus, the health center serves Henderson school children ages 4-19. Services provided by nurse practitioners include:

  • Immunizations
  • Acute and minor emergency care
  • Chronic disease management
  • Pre-participation sport physicals
  • Health education

The health center has received funding and support from Nevada State College, the Trust Fund for Public Health, the City of Henderson, St. Rose Dominican Hospital, Henderson Police and Fire Departments, and many other individuals and community agencies. In 2007 the health center was officially named in honor of Dr. Joel Bower and his late wife Carol, long-standing community supporters.
