Health & Wellness Center


OVERVIEW

The staff of the Health & Wellness Center believe physical and emotional health are vital to maximizing your time at our university. Thus, we pride ourselves on providing a safe, caring, and confidential environment for your healthcare and counseling needs.

The Health & Wellness Center’s mission is to provide quality emotional and medical care to Alvernia University’s student population, to promote an environment that encourages individuals to maximize their physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness, and to empower our students to make healthy lifestyle choices.

CONFIDENTIALITY

The Health & Wellness Center staff maintains strict standards of confidentiality. We will not release any medical or mental health records or discuss this information with anyone unless a written request or release of information has been signed by the student and submitted to our office.

No record of any Health & Wellness Center appointment or service is entered into the student’s educational record unless requested by the student and only with consent of the student.

Medical or mental health information will not be provided to any entity outside of the Health & Wellness Center without written consent signed by the student. In order to have student records sent or faxed from our office, a completed, signed Release of Information must be submitted to the Health & Wellness Center. The Health & Wellness Center staff will forward the requested information to the appropriate party within one to two business days.

Parents and guardians, student medical records will not be shared with you without the consent of your student. A student may choose to sign a Parental Consent form to allow health information to be shared with parents or guardians. This consent is applicable to medical records only. A student may revoke consent at any time.  Mental health records require additional consent.  To share these records, please speak with your counselor.

However, under extraordinary conditions, such as when a student’s life is in danger or the safety of others is at risk, confidentiality may need to be broken.

Please discuss any concerns about our confidentiality policies with the Director of Health Services or our Counseling Services staff.

LOCATION

The Health & Wellness Center is located in the lower level of Veronica Hall. The main entrance to the Center is an exterior door located above parking lot G directly across from the Physical Education Center.
