Walla Walla University and Providence Medical Group are pleased to announce that Providence will provide health services for WWU students, faculty, and staff on the university campus in College Place beginning Oct. 16, 2017.
The University Health Clinic will provide access to a registered nurse practitioner as well as 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.
“Providence is honored to partner with Walla Walla University in providing quality health care to its students, faculty, and staff,” said Susan Blackburn, chief administrative officer of Providence St. Mary Medical Center.
“One of the benefits of this partnership for students, faculty, and staff will continue to be the convenient location of the clinic,” said Hilary Catlett, WWU dean of students. The clinic will be housed on the university campus in Meske Hall at 133 S. College Ave. until later this month when, together with the Counseling and Testing Center, it will relocate to a newly renovated, ADA accessible facility shared with the University Bookstore at 295 S. College Ave.
The clinic will be open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. and on Tuesdays from 9 a.m. until noon. Clinic staff members can be reached at (509) 527-2425. Questions about billing and medical records for services provided prior to Oct. 16, 2017, should be directed to Adventist Health.
“We are so grateful for the dedication and excellent care that Adventist Health University Clinic’s team provided to our staff, faculty, and students,” said Doug Tilstra, WWU vice president for Student Life. “Now we’re excited to see that tradition continue with Providence.”
