Paducah Schools Health Visits
Paducah Schools Virtual Health Visits
Baptist Health provides virtual medical care to students and staff of McCracken County Public Schools and Paducah Independent Schools. We offer Zoom video visits to all students and staff on campus at any of our schools.
Paducah city schools has five schools nurses, all employees of Baptist Health Paducah, that are Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN’s) who are on campus to assist patients in registering and getting the patient ready for their virtual care visit with one of our providers. In McCracken County, there are two patient access coordinators that cover all schools in the district to provide the same services above to students and staff. Please note that all providers on the virtual video visits are Nurse Practitioners (NP’s).
On-site staff will assist patients with registering and logging on to the virtual visit through a school provided iPad. Each school has an iPad designated for virtual visits with Baptist Health NP’s.
From check-ups to sick care, our goal is to provide convenient, accessible healthcare to meet the needs of busy families and reduce absenteeism. Baptist Health is proud to provide this service to the community and has shifted how to receive care previously provided by school clinics. Virtual care is now available through on-demand video visits at any of our school campuses as well as online at Baptist Health Virtual Care.
