Welcome to the Health Center
Welcome to the Gonzaga University Health Center website.
About the Health Center
The Health Center functions as your private physician's office with a strong emphasis on wellness. We want you to fully benefit from this Jesuit education. In the event of an accident or illness, our Board Certified Family Physician, Nurse Practitioner and Registered Nurses are here to give you our expertise and care.
The every day decisions you make will determine your ability to stay healthy and enjoy your experiences here. The daily choices you make in regard to nutrition, exercise and rest will play a major role in your success. In a new environment your immunity will be challenged. Besides those choices mentioned, there are several more that will aid your natural resistance to diseases. They include current immunizations to measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox, Hepatitis A & B, Meningitis, Gardasil (HPV vaccine) and the yearly flu vaccine. These are vital tools to insure your wellness. Besides needing two measles (MMR) injections, the other very important vaccine is Menectra. Bacterial meningitis is slightly increased when you attend college as a first year student and live on campus. Bacterial meningitis is an infection of the fluid surrounding the brain and spine, which causes serious and even life threatening illness. There is a vaccine that can help to prevent four of the known five kinds. We recommend you consult with your own physician and receive this vaccine or come and receive it when you arrive. We prefer that you receive it before you arrive.
Our staff are well versed on ways to assist you in making wellness lifestyle choices as you engage on this trek to independence and knowledge. Life is about change and this is a major change in your life. We are ready to assist you in this transition to an independent healthy person by either medical care or by wellness consultations.
When you are on campus visiting, please drop by the Health Center, we would love to meet you.
