A new Frisco ISD employee benefit is now available as the FISD Employee Clinic recently opened. The clinic is a shared space with Children’s Health Andrews Institute for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Frisco, formerly the FISD athletic office.

The FISD Employee Clinic offers free onsite acute care services to all employees through a partnership with Children’s Health.

“It’s free, so it is covered for all employees and they can go for all sorts of basic illnesses like sore throat, sinus infection, nausea, cold, fever, flu tests, strains and sprains in muscles, and abdominal pain,” school nurse Lindsey McDavid said. “They can go for all sorts of things, to get prescriptions or referrals to another doctor if needed.

The opening of the clinic allows all FISD employees to get more accessible health care.

“This facility represents an investment in our most valuable resource, our staff,” Frisco ISD Deputy Superintendent Dr. Todd Fouche said in a FISD press release. “We value and care about our employees as people first, and they need to be physically, mentally and emotionally healthy to bring the best for our students each day. We are committed to supporting them and helping them avoid out-of-pocket costs for minor health issues.”
