Student health center to discontinue services to faculty and staff

As the University continues to identify ways to reduce costs and focus on its core mission, Student Health Services will soon cease to offer medical care or prescriptions to faculty and staff.

Effective Aug. 31, these services will no longer be available at the health center.

“We’re discontinuing services to faculty and staff in order to focus resources on our students,” says John Hall, vice president for administration and campus operations. “Providing first-rate care for our growing population of students must be our top priority.”

Faculty and staff who currently rely on Student Health Services for medical care or prescriptions will need to make alternative plans for these services after Aug. 31.

For information about an existing appointment or prescription, call Student Health Services at 2-2771.
