PROVIDING STUDENTS WITH QUALITY HEALTH CARE

The ONU Health Center is a free, walk-in clinic for ONU students. Any ONU student, regardless of insurance, may utilize our services. The Health Center provides general health assessments, treatment and referrals to specialists in the area.

Students who are ill and miss classes are responsible for notifying their professors concerning missed classes/assignments. Written excuses are not issued.

Confidentiality: All medical records are strictly confidential, and no information is released without authorization from the student in accordance with the laws of the state of Ohio. Medical records are kept for four years after a student leaves ONU, and then the records are destroyed.

It is recommended to call in advance for an appointment at 419-772-2086 to see the physician. There is no charge to see the physician, certified nurse practitioner (CNP) or nurses for injuries or illnesses. Some over-the-counter, minor injury supplies and other services are provided at no cost. Most laboratory tests, such as throat cultures, urine cultures, complete blood counts and lab mononucleosis screenings, are sent to a reference laboratory, and a fee is charged by that laboratory (Pathology Laboratories). Prescriptions are filled by a local pharmacy and billed to student insurance. Referrals are made as needed at the student's cost. All fees are the responsibility of the patient.
