Health Services

Welcome to Health Services

All students, staff, and faculty are eligible to use Wesleyan Urgent Care at 3221 Frederica Street, Suite A (next to Great Harvest Bread).

The hours are Monday – Saturday, 7am-7pm. (Taking the last patients in at 630pm).

There will be no visit co-pay upfront, if your insurance will allow this (some insurance requires a mandatory co-pay per your policy). However, this can be billed later if this is the case. You will need to bring your insurance card and ID in case medication is prescribed or labs/imaging are needed.

For basic first aid items, you can stop by the Student Life suite in Winchester Monday – Friday from 8am-5pm.

If you have questions, feel free to call Dr. Sara or her Medical Team at 270-215-7756.

Free HIV Testing for Students

We are currently affiliated with a program that offers free, confidential HIV tests. This is a simple three step process where you can receive the test and the results quickly. All that is required is your KWC student e-mail. Other STD tests are available at a discount using gift cards that you can pick up in the nurse’s office, room 213 Administration bldg. Use the following link to access this offer. The link will guide you to a universities and colleges page. Find KWC and follow directions.

Class Excuses

It is the responsibility of the student to communicate with the professor in the event of a class absence due to illness or injury, and to follow the requirements of that professor regarding the course work missed. When possible, the student should contact the instructor before the class is missed. If the instructor contacts Health Services, only the dates of the student being seen will be verified.
