I’m excited to announce plans to open a Campus Health Center to meet our students’ health and wellness needs, slated to open mid-September.
All CU Anschutz students will be eligible to receive care at the center. To meet students’ varied and tight schedules, the clinic will be conveniently located on campus — in the Anschutz Health and Wellness Building at Montview and Racine (second floor) — and will have extended hours including weekday evenings and Saturdays.
The center will offer integrated physical and behavioral health care, provided by board-certified nurse practitioners. The service delivery and design is being led by Amy Barton, professor and associate dean for clinical and community affairs at the College of Nursing.
The center will eventually be open to all members of the campus community, with priority for appointments given to students. Services are designed to be convenient, affordable, and accessible. The Campus Health Center will accept insurance from a variety of providers, including the CU Student Health Insurance Plans A and B, private insurance, Medicaid and Medicare.
The initiative has been underway for several months, thanks to the tireless efforts of these individuals, among many:
As a medical campus, our students’ health is particularly important to us. The new Campus Health Center will allow our students to have their health needs met conveniently and affordably. Watch for more details as we get closer to the center’s opening.
