Gaylord Blue Devil Wellness Center


The Blue Devil Wellness Center is a school-based health facility of the Health Department of Northwest Michigan, in collaboration with Gaylord Public Schools, located in Gaylord High School. We offer services to anyone aged 10 through 21 (and their children). Appointments are available year-round and same-day appointments may be available during our hours of operation (listed below). We offer health care and prevention services, including screenings to detect behavioral or developmental issues, and information for parents and guardians on nearly any topic related to adolescent health. All services are FREE. We also assist uninsured families with MIChild and Healthy Kids applications.

Physical Health and Mental Health Services include:

› Education and referrals to establish a primary care provider
› Individual, family and group counseling with a licensed Therapist
› Health assessments and risk reduction
› Treatment for illness, including prescriptions
› Treatment for injuries
› Chronic disease management in partnership with health care provider
› Physical exams for school, sports and camp
› Basic laboratory services and tests
› Referral for specialty health services
› Immunizations
› Vision/hearing screening
› Sexually transmitted infection (STI) prevention, screening and treatment with abstinence-based education

The focus is on prevention, as well. The choices students make about alcohol, drug, and tobacco use, eating and physical activity, and personal relationships stay with them the rest of their lives. The Gaylord Blue Devil Wellness Center staff is devoted to promoting healthy choices for students. Our mission is to offer students in Gaylord primary health care services with a focus on preventive health and reduction of risk behaviors, removing barriers to students' academic success, and promoting health and fitness now and in the future.
