Student Health Center

The Student Health Center (SHC) staff extends a big welcome to all new and returning students!  There are many changes and challenges as we start the 2020-2021 school year.  With healthy habits and using your SHC as a resource for your health needs, we can work together in keeping you and our campus community safe during this school year.  By following guidelines of the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/prevention.html) and UMW’s Return to Campus Plan (https://www.umw.edu/returntocampus/) we can make this happen together.

Although there will be NO WALK-IN APPOINTMENTS, the Health Center staff is available to address your health concerns.  All appointments need to be scheduled by contacting us at 540-654-1040.  After SHC business hours, you may call HealthLink and speak with a registered nurse at 540-741-1000.  In the event of an emergency, call campus police at 540-654-4444.

 

Changes at the Student Health Center

The University has enhanced student health services to support COVID-19 needs, including establishing a Student Health Center satellite site at a dedicated on-campus quarantine location in Marshall Hall.

Typical health services (non-COVID-19) will be maintained and supported from the Student Health Center in Lee Hall with several changes. Visits to the center will be by appointment only. Telemedicine visits will be increasingly used (as appropriate). Students with COVID-19 symptoms will be evaluated virtually by a nurse and directed as to the time of the appointment at the satellite clinic in Marshall. This will permit the center to continue to support typical health services while also remotely directing symptomatic individuals and close contacts to quarantine space without congregation in a single space. In addition, the center in Lee Hall has modified operations, posted signage, adopted new procedures for the waiting and exam rooms.  There is increased use of HEPA filtration, and enhanced disinfecting of exam rooms. The center has also moved to an electronic health records system this Fall in order to limit use of shared objects such as paper records and to support satellite services.
