ABOUT THE WELLNESS CENTER
The Mars Hill University Wellness Center (also known as the Infirmary), located in Robinson Hall, is the health facility for the campus community. The Wellness Center staff provides primary care for full-time students. The Wellness Center is part of the student development office and works closely with this office in order to assist in each student’s physical and emotional development during his/her college experience.
A physician, physician’s assistant, or nurse practitioner associated with the Hot Springs Health Program assesses sick and injured students at the center on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. Students should arrive before 9am to see the physician. Physician services at the Wellness Center are at no additional cost to the student. This service is only offered to full-time, day students.
Students who need medical assistance outside these posted hours are strongly encouraged to seek the nurses’ care at the Wellness Center and may be treated according to physician standing orders. The nurse may opt to schedule an appointment at the Mars Hill Medical Center (closest office to campus that is part of the Hot Spring Health Program) for physician assessment. The student or his/her parent will be billed for any unpaid balance.
The Wellness Center is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for students. The university accepts responsibility to uphold and enforce North Carolina Public Health Law and considers recommendations from the American College Health Association and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The university’s health forms provide medical staff with the necessary information we need to assure that we are providing a safe and healthy campus community. New students are required to complete the health form and submit no later than August 1, for Fall enrollment and January 1, for spring enrollment.
Students cannot move into the resident halls until all forms are submitted and cleared by Medical Services.
