Nursing Services to be Provided by Covenant ClinicDistrict District
As of January 1, 2018, the nurses and health assistants in the District will now be provided by Covenant Clinic. This past summer the Black Hawk County Health Department notified the District they could no longer provide nursing services. Various options were explored, with a focus on the best way to continue the coverage and services provided throughout our District. Covenant Clinic was chosen as the provider.
“We are pleased to partner with the District to provide ongoing health care to students in the district," said Mark Wall, director of Covenant Clinic. "The students will recognize many of the nurses and health assistants who have provided, and will continue to provide, exceptional care while in school."
“We are very pleased that Covenant Clinic will be providing the nurses and health assistants in Cedar Falls Schools. Our main goal is to continue to provide excellent nursing care to our students and we are able to do that with Covenant Clinic,” said Dr. Andy Pattee, Superintendent, Cedar Falls Schools.
