Our center contains offices and consultation rooms for outpatient treatment, a medical laboratory, pharmacy, treatment rooms for care of minor emergencies, and beds for patients who must be observed.
Our facilities and services are available to students who have paid a health fee for the current term. Student dependents are not eligible for care unless they are students.

To support recent graduates of the University of West Georgia, Health Services will now provide medical care for two semesters following graduation to those who elect to pay the current Health fee. The time between school and employment is often a challenging time for graduates since they sometimes do not have access to adequate health care during that transitional time.
