Pediatric Partners of the Southwest is now the medical sponsor of the School-Based Health Center at Durango High School, effective July 1, 2019.

Since 2007, Axis Health System has been honored to serve healthcare needs of families and students through School-Based Health Centers (SBHC) in La Plata County, Colorado. As of July 1, 2019, the operation of the SBHC at Durango High School will shift from Axis Health System (AHS) to Pediatric Partners of the Southwest (PPSW). The SBHC at Florida Mesa Elementary School in Durango is now closed.

PPSW will bring their expertise as a comprehensive pediatric practice to Durango High School. They will take all major health insurance, including Health First Colorado (Medicaid), and will continue to offer the same sliding-fee scale that AHS has in place for the uninsured. 

The School-Based Health Center phone number will remain the same. You may drop by the SBHC or call 970.375.3832 to make an appointment. For more information about PPSW, visit or call 970.375.0100.

Axis Health System will make a meaningful difference in the health of Southwest Colorado residents by integrating all aspects of healthcare and treating the whole person.
