SUU Student Health Clinic lobbySouthern Utah University is excited to open the doors to its new Student Health Clinic on Monday, March 13, 2023. SUU is partnering with FourPoints Health which will oversee the clinic and medical care.

“The SUU Student Health Clinic will provide much-needed on-campus medical care to assist students in pursuing their academic goals,” said Brian Fullerton, executive director of recreation and wellness at SUU. “The goal was to remove as many barriers to health care as we could, and we are thrilled to be able to provide quality care in an easy-to-access location for students.”

The Student Health Clinic will be open from 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. during the fall and spring semesters. Hours will adjust during campus breaks and the summer semester to 1 - 5 p.m. The clinic is located on the first floor of the Bennion Building in Suite 111. Current SUU students can receive treatment on a walk-in, first-come first-served basis, appointments aren’t needed. No fees or insurance is required for treatment.

Some services that will be available at SUU include:

  • Preventative care
  • Cold and flu treatment
  • Non-emergency injuries
  • Basic lab services
  • Screenings
  • Women’s health
  • Pharmaceutical services
  • Health education
  • Chronic care management
  • Nutrition guidance

The new Student Health Clinic is part of an overall wellness initiative on campus and SUU’s commitment to serving students. Additional resources provided by an increase in student fees in 2022 allowed the university to establish the on-campus health clinic and provide additional mental health counseling to students.
