Office of Health Services

The Southwestern Health Center provides care and education to assist students as they learn to take responsibility for their own health and well-being. Emphasis is placed on the importance of preventing illness through a healthy lifestyle, as well as on helping students manage the health problems college students sometimes encounter.

Please bring your most current health insurance card to every Health Center appointment. While the Health Center does charge private insurance, students will not be charged a co-pay, or billed for Health Center services not covered by their insurance. Labs are sent off-site to CPL Laboratories, who will bill insurance separately from the Health Center.

The SU Health Center will continue to provide high quality health care to ALL students regardless of their health insurance status or ability to pay.
