Student Health Center
The Student Health Center is an urgent care facility conveniently located on the Saint Mary's College campus. Our staff provides confidential clinical services to all undergraduate students with compassion and integrity. Our holistic approach supports the mind, body, and spirit.
Our staff provide medical services in an urgent care model to all full-time undergraduate students for illnesses and injuries. These services are provided regardless of health insurance or residential status. For serious or chronic illnesses, students are assessed by our Clinicians then referred or “bridged” to hospitals and medical providers in the community or to their primary medical provider at home.
As an urgent care clinic we strive to provide accessible and patient centered wellness services.
All full-time undergraduate students are eligible to use the Student Health Center, no matter what insurance a student may have.
Medical records are confidential and are protected by law. Therefore, information in a student's medical records, absent an order of the court (subpoena or warrant), may not be disclosed, discussed, or copied without the student's written consent, except in the case of public health matters where certain diseases are required to be reported to Contra Costa County Health Services. If medical information is requested by either a private Clinician or by the Student Health Center, this must be in writing with a release of information form signed by the student.
The Student Health Center does not issue class excuses but can provide documentation that a student was seen at the Student Health Center if needed.
