Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College has teamed up with Union Health to open an on-site clinic in Terre Haute. The facility is staffed by a nurse practitioner who provides basic health services like flu shots, immunizations, health assessments, physical exams and lab testing. 

Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College President Dottie King says, "Having an accessible health clinic on campus results in early treatment and preventative care for our students."We are grateful for our donors and for the partnership of Union Foundation for making possible our commitment to expand health and wellness.”

SMWC representatives joined Union Health officials for a ceremonial ribbon-cutting at the new clinic on Friday. “We are extremely excited about this partnership with Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College,” said Steve Holman, president and chief executive officer of Union Health. “Our mission is to provide compassionate healthcare of the highest quality, and we look forward to doing so right here on campus as part of the SMWC Health Services Clinic.”

The clinic is located in the Rooney Library, and will serve students, faculty and staff, along with Sisters of Providence and their employees. Health services for students are covered by tuition and fees. Hours are 8a-4p Monday and Wednesday, 9a-3p Tuesday and Thursday, and closed on Friday.
