Virtual Urgent Care

  • Did you know that Genesee Valley Central School has an Urgent Care?

    The GVCS Urgent Care is open Monday-Friday during school hours 7:40 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

    In addition to treating non-emergent medical needs such as ear infections, pink eye, allergies, skin abnormalities, and more, the GVCS Urgent Care can uniquely test students and employees for COVID-19, Influenza, Strep Throat, and Urinalysis.

    What is Telemedicine?

    Teemedicine Genesee Valley students can be quickly evaluated, diagnosed and treated by a medical provider by using telecommunications technology. Students get the care they need, when they need it, right in their own school community.

    Telemedicine does not replace a family doctor; it provides immediate access to medical services.

    How it Works

    1. Student checks in at the school health office
    2. The school nurse initiates a call with our telemedicine agency, Mobile Primary Care
    3. A medical provider joins the student and school nurse on a video call
    4. The provider evaluates the patient via bluetooth medical instruments
    5. At the conclusion of the video call, the physician can write a script, order labs and provide a treatment plan 
    6. A summary of the treatment plan is sent to the child's physician
