A new partnership is bringing health centers into Schenectady city schools.
Hometown Health Centers now have two of the county's first school-based health centers open in Mont Pleasent Middle School and Schenectady High School.
Regardless of insurance situations, students can have all of their health care needs fulfilled free of charge, at the center in their school.
"But if they actually have an issue, a sickness. They can come here. They don't have to take their parents out of work to come and get them. They don't have to worry about getting a bus or any type of transportation. They can be taken care of here and if they need to they can stay here until their parents come home and can come and get them," said Hometown health Centers CEO Joe Gambino.
The centers will be staffed by family nurses and physicians.
