Welcome to the Tuscany Heights Clinic

  • Our goal in the clinic is to help students reach their maximum potential by keeping them healthy and ready to learn. Health education, illness and injury prevention, early detection and treatment of illness, and quality skilled intervention for acute and chronic health needs are provided by the clinic staff. These services are not a substitute for a student's regular medical care. Our services are to alert parents/guardians to their student's health status, inform them of health concerns, and encourage use of the services of their physician, dentist, and community health agencies. Health Services follows the policies, requirements, and regulations established by the Texas Education Agency, the Texas Department of State Health Services, the Texas Board of Nursing, and NEISD.
