Hours

Student Health is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm throughout the year. A registered nurse is on duty full time at the center to administer services such as care and dressing of minor injuries, consultation concerning medical problems, dispensing non-prescription medication for minor illnesses and to answer questions concerning immunizations requirements for students.

A physician or physician assistant is available Mondays and Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and Tuedays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. during the fall and spring semesters. Our clinic provides general medical care for minor, acute illnesses but has limited lab and evaluation ability. If an illness requires referral to a physician, laboratory or x-ray facility, the student and/or the student's insurance company must handle any related expenses. Student Health Services will assist with referrals if necessary and may verify that this relationship has been established and is being continued.  It is the patient's responsibility to follow up with Student Health Services and/or with the facility or physician of their choice. For chronic care conditions, patients must maintain an ongoing relationship with a primary care physicians.


Additional Information

Students are seen on a first come, first serve basis. There is no fee for physician visits. We accept cash, checks or Eagle Bucks for available immunizations, prescription and non-prescription drugs, TB tests, flu and strep tests, flu shots, and other testing and/or lab fees. Students may also bill charges to their student account.

In case of illness or accident, the university is authorized by the student or guardian to take whatever action the university deems necessary for the health and welfare of the student, including hospitalization.

Student Health Services does not issue excuses from class for illness or injury. We will provide documentation of clinic visits. It is at the professor's discretion whether or not to accept this documentation as an excuse from class. All Student Health Services records are considered privileged information and are strictly confidential.

When a student is too ill to go to the cafeteria, meals may be brought to his or her residence hall room by "sick tray" permits. These must be obtained from the Residence Hall Director.

ORU is committed to combining prayer and medicine as the best means of maintaining and regaining health. One is not substituted for the other, but they are used synergistically.
