The Cheney Wellness Cottage, a Federally Qualified Healthcare Center (FQHC), opened in December 2014 to provide primary medical services to Cheney Elementary School students and families, as well as other community members in East Orlando (pediatric and adult care). The Wellness Cottage is located on the south end of the school’s campus. The physician and nursing staff at the Wellness Cottage offer services such as annual physicals, treatment of common colds, primary gynecology care, diabetic and blood pressure screenings, immunizations, cancer and disease screenings, lab services, health education and referrals.
The Cottage is operated by the True Health (formerly Central Florida Family Health Centers), and was developed with the support of Nemours Children’s Hospital and The Florida Blue Foundation in cooperation with the Winter Park Health Foundation and Orange County Public Schools (OCPS). The Wellness Cottage was the first school-based health care center operated by a FQHC in Orange County and accepts most major insurance providers, including Medicare and Medicaid. Since the Cottage has been operational, from December 2014 to July 2015, staff has served 2,045 adult patients and 215 pediatric patients equating to approximately 292 adult and 30 pediatric patients per month.
