Adolescence marks a critical stage of intellectual, physical, and psychological development. As children approach their teenage years, they learn social skills and develop behaviors that shape their immediate and long-term health status. Regular access to health care during this transition stage ensures that individuals develop the skills necessary to navigate the health care system and promote positive health behaviors.
While adolescent-focused health programs are known to reduce health risks and improve academic performance, access to care is a consistent challenge. School-Based Health Centers (SBHCs) were developed to combat this issue by delivering health care services where young people spend most of their time: directly on school campuses. Pacifica Wellness Center aims to improve the health outcomes for school-aged children by establishing the first SBHC in Oxnard, California. By conducting a thorough assessment of the potential market and developing a realistic financial analysis, the business can ensure long-term sustainability of this unique partnership between providers, school administrators, and community members.
