MORRISANIA - New school-based health clinics are set to serve thousands of students in the Bronx. 

At Morris High School, a state-of-the-art health facility offers medical, dental and mental health services will serve 1,600 students in what used to be a classroom.

The clinic is a partnership with Montefiore Medical Center. It will be staffed by a Montefiore physician, a nurse, a social worker, a part-time dentist and a community organizer.

The health center will bill students’ insurance companies for services, and pick up the tab for uninsured students.
