Student Health Center - Medical Services

Medical Services

The FLC Student Health Center supports the medical and mental health of all Fort Lewis College students through education and advocacy. As a primary care facility we manage acute illness and injuries, assist with chronic conditions and mental health. We are affordable & accessible with an in-house pharmacy and lab. We believe that every student deserves access to professional and compassionate medical care, delivered in a welcoming and respectful manner. Our professional staff of Medical Office Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Medical Doctor, and Registered Nurses, welcome you at the Student Health Center.

Appointments are advised but walk-ins are seen whenever possible.

We are not able to provide a Student Health Insurance Plan at this time.
