Health clinic will start school year with new provider


Walla Walla University’s on-campus health clinic will start the new year with a new name and under a new provider. The College Place Health Clinic will provide well-rounded health care to students thanks to a new partnership with Columbia County Health System (CCHS)

The College Place Health Clinic is housed in the Health and Wellness Center and provides primary care, preventative medicine, medication management for behavioral health, and acute illness and injury care, among other services, to university students. The Health and Wellness Center also provides counseling and testing services. This new partnership with CCHS will allow students to access a variety of health care services in a convenient on-campus location.

Stephanie Bennet has been selected as the clinic’s new provider. Bennet is an advanced registered nurse practitioner with a history in family and pediatric medicine.

Morgan Rudley, dean for student health and wellness, said, “This is something the university has been working on for a while. We wanted to focus on finding the right provider, someone who has an understanding of our culture and values and who is a good fit for our campus. We are excited to have found Stephanie Bennet.”

The clinic will be open to Walla Walla University students by appointment or for walk-ins starting on Monday, September 26. Clinic hours are Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

To learn more about staying healthy at WWU, new students and student parents are invited to visit the Health and Wellness Center during its open house on Thursday, September 22, at 6 p.m.
