Because it's located right in school, SBHC helps teens overcome many obstacles to receiving good health care - obstacles such as lack of transportation, inconvenient appointment times, or worries about cost and confidentiality.The SBHC is operated by a partnership that includes Christiana Care, Christina School District, and Department of Health and Social Services, Delaware Division of Public Health. Christiana Care is rated the No. 1 Quality Leader in the region by the National Research Corporation for the past two years.
