Services

The FLC Student Health Center supports the medical and mental health of all Fort Lewis College students so each may achieve academic success and personal fulfillment. As a primary care facility with an in-house pharmacy and lab, we can manage most acute illnesses and injuries, assist with chronic conditions, diagnose and treat common mental health issues, and provide minor surgical and nursing services.  Personal health education is provided at each visit. 

Our professional staff of Nurse Practitioners, Medical Doctor, and Registered Nurses provide similar services to your family doctor's office at home.

We are affordable & accessible, located right here on campus for your convenience!
