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.
