Health clinic at Merriam Park Elementary will offer summer hours for Shawnee Mission students

Health Partnership Clinic’s operation at Merriam Park Elementary will have summer hours.

The unique health clinic operating out of Merriam Park Elementary thanks to a collaboration between the Shawnee Mission School District and Health Partnership Clinic will continue to offer physical, mental and dental health services over the summer.

Opened early this year, the goal of the clinic is to provide convenient access to health services for Shawnee Mission students regardless of whether they have insurance. Any Shawnee Mission student, not just those who attend Merriam Park, which is located at 6100 Mastin St. in Merriam, can get services at the clinic.

After classes let out for summer later this month, Health Partnership Clinic will continue to offer clinic hours at the site. The hours will be:

  • Walk-in for well or sick visits and annual/sports physicals to include immunizations
    12:30 to 3:30 p.m. Tuesdays
    For more info call 913-648-2266
  • By-appointment hours for behavioral health visits
    8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Wednesdays
    For an appointment call 913-993-3638

Health Partnership Clinic accepts Medicaid (KanCare) as well as commercial insurance. It also offers a sliding payment scale for uninsured patients. (Families who want to use the sliding scale must submit paperwork verifying their income level).
