School Based Health Center

Keeping Bryant Kids Healthy

Located at Bryant Elementary, the Hornet Health Center is a doctor’s office on campus where students can receive quality care at the most convenient location for them—school. The Center operates as a partnership with the school, Arkansas Pediatric Clinic, and Connection Company (Bryant School District Department of Mental Health Services).

Dr. Anton Duke and Dr. Kristi Hawkins provide care for illness and minor injury, as well as routine wellness services including immunizations and preventative health care. Mental health services are also available.

With enrollment in the health center, students are able to be seen by medical personnel during a brief break from the school day without having to miss hours or even an entire day. It’s especially helpful to parents who will not have to leave work for a doctor’s appointment. No student will be seen in the health center without prior parent permission.

With the goal of creating a culture of health, school personnel will work together with parents to ensure the health center meets student needs efficiently, effectively, and seamlessly.

Students must have parent permission prior to being seen at the Health Center. The Center bills the insurance agency after confirming health coverage. Doctors also see patients with Medicaid.

The Center is open on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 8:30am-12pm. To make an appointment call 664-4117 (ask to be seen at the Bryant office). For more information, contact Susan Kennedy at 653-5040.

The Hornet Health Center was made possible by a grant from Arkansas Department of Education–Office of Coordinated School Health.
