Services

The Campus Health & Wellness (CH&W) mission is to support a healthy campus so that academic support is maximized. CH&W offers a wide range of medical services to all students, full time faculty, and staff. If you have a question regarding whether or not a service is offered please email us or come in and ask.

Basic Services

The main objective of basic services is to provide outpatient medical services for the care of acute and sub acute conditions, illnesses, and injuries rather than comprehensive medical care for major problems. The professional staff of nurse practitioners, physician consultant, and registered nurses provide treatment of episodic problems of short duration such as colds, flus, minor accidents and limited physical examinations. If the problem requires medical workup beyond the scope of the Center's available facilities, referral is made to outside professional care.

Full-time Walla Walla University faculty/staff; staff who have Risk Management insurance through the college may receive written prescription items through Campus Health & Wellness. The co-pay must be made at the time of receipt. Written prescriptions obtained can be delivered to the campus. Some prescriptions, antibiotics, anti-inflammatories and cough syrups are available in the CH&W Clinic. Over-the-counter medications can be purchased through the clinic. Purchases must be paid by check or cash.

Accidents

Accidents occurring at work need to be claimed on Worker's Compensation. It is the worker's responsibility to report all accidents to Human Resources who will process the claims. If the injury needs first aid care, you may be seen at CH&W. You will then be referred out for evaluation and care. Serious accidents should involve a trip to the emergency room.
