Student Health Services campus clinic gets a makeover

July 30, 2019

Huskies will notice significant architectural and aesthetic improvements to NIU Health Services campus clinic this fall.

“Providing an excellent patient experience from the moment students walk in our door is our number one priority,” says Sarah Real, practice administrator, Northwestern Medicine Regional Medical Group.  “We are pleased to make an investment in the aesthetics of the clinic and excited about new custom millwork to house literature and medical materials for patient education.”

The campus clinic, operated and managed by Northwestern Medicine, offers a variety of options for helping students address their health needs ranging from check-ups and lab work to sick-visits and minor procedures.

Renovation on the health center began in July and will be completed prior to the beginning of the fall semester. Along with making the clinic more visually appealing with new carpet, paint and artwork, new registration desks were added to enhance patient privacy.

“All of the changes being made impact the patient and enhance the patient’s experience,” Andrew Digate, director of NIU Health Services, said. “We are committed to offering a high quality and comprehensive student health program for all NIU students and these changes being made by Northwestern Medicine signals a strong level of commitment to our community.”

NIU Health Services Student Health Clinic is located on the first floor of the Health Services building on Wirtz Drive behind the Department of Police and Public Safety building. They are open from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Mondays-Fridays. Go to Health Services Student Health Clinic or call (815)306-2777.
