The services offered aim to enhance self-care knowledge of illness and prevention. The Health Center provides healthcare resources internally and works as a liaison between external health care providers when needed. Services are available to students on a walk-in or appointment basis during office hours. The Health Center offers services of basic triage, minor first aids, availability of some over the counter medications, tuberculosis testing, influenza vaccination, and other low intensity services mostly at no extra charge. Students can come to the Health Center for an initial assessment and, if necessitated, a referral to Family Medicine Center or other local medical resources. Off-campus referrals to other medical providers will be the financial responsibility of the student.

The Wheeling University Health Insurance Policy
All undergraduate students residing in campus housing and all full-time non-citizen ELI and international students are required to maintain medical insurance coverage. A copy must be submitted to the Med + Proctor WebSite before Orientation, so the student will be able to attend the first day of class. While the university Health Center will continue to refer students needing non-emergency off-campus medical care to off-campus facilities, the absence of proof of medical insurance may prohibit rendering of non-emergency off-campus medical services. All students are financially resposible for medical services provided by off-campus health care providers.
In the event of an emergency, first CALL 911 followed by PUBLIC SAFETY at 304-243-2486.
In addition, notify the Health Center at 304-243-2225 if during normal business hours for follow-up purposes. If outside normal business hours, notify Residence Life staff on duty through the appropriate residence hall duty phone number. All Residence Life staff are certified in American Red Cross First Aid and CPR annually.
