Union Public Schools is very proud of our partnership with OU Physicians which allows us the opportunity to provide access to quality health care while helping to control escalating medical costs. Together we provide a Clinic for Union’s over 2000 employees and their covered dependents with an ever continuing focus on health and wellness.
Participating full-time Union employees are fully covered by health insurance through a PPO, a high-deductible qualified PPO medical plan/HSA, or HMO plan that is paid by a combination of the State’s contribution and the district’s additional contribution, as a part of the employee’s compensation. The Clinic services are open to the covered dependents of these employees as well.
The Clinic strives to maintain a vision of accessible, convenient, high quality care so employees can receive fast medical attention, reducing time away from work. Same or next day appointments are frequently available.
The Clinic offers a professional atmosphere with convenient parking and is separate from school facilities. All medical care is confidential and protected by HIPAA laws as in other physicians’ offices.
This location offers access to quality medical attention tailored to meet employee needs. A 24-hour referral and physician on-call service is also available.
Appointments are required at The Clinic. In the event you are unable to keep a scheduled appointment please be courteous and notify Clinic staff as soon as possible so a fellow employee might be able to receive care.
The Clinic is dedicated to providing comprehensive health care for the district and its staff includes a medical doctor and a physician assistant. A registered nurse is employed full-time and dedicated to wellness activities. Support staff includes a certified medical assistant who not only assists the medical staff but provides immunizations, lab services and nurse only visits. There is also a patient service representative available for scheduling appointments and coordinating referrals.
Clinic Services are available to:
