Dr. Taylor MacKenzie Health Center
Having your child live at Navajo Prep all week long can be difficult — especially when trying to schedule a doctor’s appointment for your child. The School Based Health Center (SBHC) is an outpatient clinic on campus. We bring health care to where students are — in school — making it convenient for you, as a parent.
We provide comprehensive health services so students can avoid health-related absences and get support to succeed in school. We serve all Navajo Prep Students who have parental consent. Our services are free thanks to our working relationship with Shiprock IHS and a grant from the Department of Health.
School Nurse’s Office
The School Nurse and Health Assistant are available to provide care to students with minor illnesses or injuries. A cot room is available for students to rest if they do not feel well enough to attend classes. Observation and supportive care, including over the counter medications and nutrition, are provided. The School Nursing staff may triage students with primary health care needs to a SBHC doctor. For more urgent or complex needs, referrals may be made to San Juan Regional Medical Center or a local urgent care clinic, at the discretion of the School Nurse or another NPS staff member.
