Marion Wellness School Health Center welcomes Rep. Dave Severin

Posted: Updated:

MARION, Ill. -- The Marion Wellness School Health Center welcomed Representative Dave Severin for a tour in honor of National Health Center week.

The week is centered around raising awareness about the mission of health centers across the nation and the dedicated staff who provide the care. The tour's aim was to show support for community and school based health centers, like the one at Marion High School. They offer everything from preventative and sick care services to mental health services.

"I see the efficiency of healthcare being initiated here on a daily basis," Severin said. "If you're in this school district, any part of it and you have needs with your students, you call the clinic, make an appointment and they will work with you. What an awesome program."

Shawnee Health Service operates Marion Wellness School Health Center which serves students, parents, faculty and staff of Marion Consolidated Unit School District #2.
