CPS encourages all families to have a medical home. A medical home includes:
- The partnership between your family and your child’s primary care doctor
- Your primary care doctor working with your team of healthcare providers
- Connections to services that meet your child’s and your family’s needs
- Respect for your family’s religious and cultural beliefs
- After hours and weekend access to medical consultations about your child
Medical clinic locator
There are many clinics available throughout the City of Chicago to assist you and your family with immunizations and health exams. To find a clinic near you, visit the medical clinics website, and enter your home or work address.
School health centers
CPS collaborates with local medical providers to operate clinics within select schools throughout the District. These centers provide primary and preventive healthcare services to students while reducing lost school time, removing financial barriers to healthcare, and promoting family involvement.
Most centers focus primarily on the healthcare of students, and student family members who attend that school during school hours. Some centers however do see neighboring school students and community residents.
School health centers provide services at low to no cost to students. All centers accept All Kids Health Insurance and most accept major insurance carriers. Students must have a parental consent on file in order to receive services. To find out if your child’s school has a school health center, their hours of operation, and if they see students beyond those registered at that school, view our school health center list.
