University Health Clinic

The University Health Clinic provides health services for WWU students, faculty, and staff on the university campus in College Place.

The University Health Clinic is a partnership between WWU and Providence St. Mary Medical Center, our local hospital which is part of Providence Medical Group. The clinic is staffed by a full-time registered nurse and also provides access to a registered nurse practitioner. It also provides insurance billing for students, faculty, and staff, who come to the clinic prepared to present their insurance card and driver’s license and/or WWU ID card.

Students are encouraged to check their health insurance plan to be sure Providence Medical Group is an in-network provider, or consider other health insurance plans which include it in their network.

3. Consider a physical exam (optional)

A complete physical is recommended for new students. This examination can be performed by your regular physician.

Meningococcal disease requires close contact to spread so is a concern on college campuses, especially for students living in residence halls. In Washington state fewer than 20 cases occur each year.

In the case of an accident/incident, refer to reporting and claims information from Risk and Safety Management. With the exception of intercollegiate athletics accidents, the University does not provide student accident insurance coverage.

Intercollegiate Athletic Accident Insurance is for students injured while participating in the University intercollegiate sports program. The Athletic Trainer/Coach will assist the student to complete the A-G Accident Claim Form found at the WWU Athletics website at http://uwolves.com/sports/2016/5/10/returning-athletes.aspx. For additional information on coverage, see the Intercollegiate Athletic Accident Plan and Summary.
