Health Clinic

The Bishop Lynch Health Clinic is located on Ferguson Hall, across from the Guidance Suite. 

Managing health concerns requires a partnership among the student, the parents/guardians, the physician and the school faculty and staff who work with the student on a daily basis. Our mission at Bishop Lynch is to help enhance the education potential of all students by promoting wellness and facilitating the resolution of health concerns that create barriers to learning.
