Fetter Health Care Network expands school-based program

Charleston SC – Fetter Health Care Network continues serving the community through its partnership with Charleston County School District, continually offering a variety of healthcare services, including dental, to students within local schools: Baptist Hill Middle High School in Hollywood, Jerry Zucker Middle School of Science in North Charleston and Minnie Hughes Elementary School in Hollywood.

“Our students will greatly benefit from Fetter’s additional services that focus on school-age children,” said Vanessa P. Brown, Baptist Middle High School principal. “So many of our students have limited access to quality, affordable care, and we are so thrilled to be able to grant them this service with the Fetter Health Care Network.”

Fetter’s clinical providers work alongside nursing, case management and support staff to provide basic primary care, comprehensive dental services, screenings, immunizations, and referrals to students and staff.

“We are delighted to expand our efforts through our school-based programs that help the future of our communities: our children,” said Aretha R. Jones Powers, CEO of Fetter Health Care Network. “We want to help them succeed by providing accessible quality healthcare.”
