Walla Walla General Hospital to Provide Campus Health Services at WWU
Walla Walla General Hospital/Adventist Health began providing health services for Walla Walla University (WWU) students, faculty and staff on the university campus in College Place, Wash., as of Sept. 1.
The new Adventist Health University Clinic represents a new model of campus health care at WWU that offers 24-hour access to an advanced registered nurse practitioner, a medical assistant or an on-call physician. Students, faculty and staff continue to enjoy the excellent health care they’ve come to appreciate on campus, while benefiting from the depth of services provided by a large health care system. One of those benefits is insurance billing by the clinic.
“It is our desire to operate a health clinic at WWU that understands and complements the unique needs of a university campus,” says Monty Knittel, Walla Walla General Hospital president and CEO.
“An additional benefit of this new partnership will continue to be the convenient location of the clinic,” says Hilary Catlett, WWU dean of students. The clinic will be housed in Meske Hall on the university campus at 133 S. College Ave., College Place, Wash. Future plans call for a new clinic location. The clinic can be reached at 509-527-2425.
