Southern clinic serves students, athletes and community

RACINE — For the past 6 years, Coplin Health System, provider for the Southern Health Clinic, has sponsored the free May Sports physicals at Southern. This past Spring the clinic at Southern completed over 138 physicals. This is an in-kind donation of $2,760 in services provided to the Southern community. During the past six years over $16,560 in services to the community have been provided to the athletic program and school district.

Superintendent Tony Deem said, “We are very happy to have Coplin Health Systems as part of our Southern family. Our clinic has been a great asset to our students, families, and staff. The additional services that Coplin provides for our athletes has been an invaluable resource and we appreciate the efforts of the clinic staff. This is just an example of another way the clinic adds value to our school community.”

“We are so privileged to have Coplin Health Systems teaming with Southern Local. I wanted to take a minute to report this good news,” said Nurse Practitioner Junie Maynard. “It has been a win-win experience for us to provide services right here at home for our students and athletes.”

Since the clinic has come on campus, student absences have been fewer as most medical needs can be handled in-house.

The Southern Clinic is open to the public every day that Southern Local is in session and is now open Mondays throughout the summer.
