Population Served

(1) General: The Student Health and Wellness Center (SHWC) exists primarily to provide primary medical care, limited counseling and health education services for the registered students of Southern Oregon University. Such care is available only during those hours the SHWC is open, and may be limited by clinical scope of practice and available resources. The provision of all services must be free of discrimination with regard to age, handicap, national origin, race, marital status, religion, gender or sexual orientation.

(2) Population served:

(a) Registered students who pay a health fee in advance each term at registration. The fee, which is subject to change from year to year, is adopted by the Oregon State Board of Higher Education;

(b) Provision of services to non-registered SOU students is dependent upon available resources including but not limited to staffing, space, and scheduling so as not to compromise quality and availability of service for registered students. At a minimum, full cost reimbursement for such services will be charged unless prior arrangement for compensation has been determined by the SHWC Director with a sponsoring program. A record of such services shall be maintained;

(c) Non-registered students (auditor status) are not eligible for regular services rendered by the Health Center;

(d) Any non-enrolled student who was enrolled the previous term and will be enrolled the subsequent term is eligible for services provided the health fee is paid for that term.

(3) Emergency Care: Persons in need of emergency care or first-aid, other than those eligible for regular SHWC care as outlined above, who present themselves or are brought to the SHWC or to a SHWC First Aid Station at SOU events, may receive initial medical assessment, emergent or first aid care and triage to community based resources. Such care is available only during those hours the SHWC is normally open, and when the First Aid Station is staffed. Persons receiving care may be charged for the full the cost of services and supplies.

(4) Disaster Care: In the event of a community wide disaster or mass casualty incident, the SHWC may serve as treatment and triage site for injured persons that may not have otherwise been eligible for care, and that are in need of medical care outside the normal scope of services available at the SHWC.
