Madison Wellness Center 

Your Madison student can get healthcare at our full-time Madison Wellness Center which is operated in partnership with Seattle Schools & Neighborcare Health (formerly Puget Sound Neighborhood Health Centers)–a Community Health Center serving Seattle since 1968.

The Madison Wellness Center is staffed by our school nurse, Ms. Mindy Elbaum, as well as Medical & Mental Health professionals, who provide all the services that your family doctor provides in a teen-friendly setting. For services specifically from the Pediatric Nurse Practitioner or Mental Health professional, please enroll your child by completing and signing registration, consent, and health history forms and returning them to the Madison Wellness Center. 

Pick up forms from the Madison Wellness Center or complete the registration forms online.

Vaccination update!

Due to high rate of exemptions, children are not getting required vaccinations and the overall population is at considerable risk for catching vaccine-preventable illness, like whooping cough, measles, etc. Everyone is put at risk when the percentage of non-immunized students & adults rises. Vulnerable populations, e.g., infants, immune-system compromised patients & elderly are especially in danger.

The State Legislature just passed a law requiring that all parents planning to sign an exemption first speak with a healthcare provider.
