Health & Wellness Services offers confidential health-care services to all students, faculty, and staff of the Cleveland State University community. The clinic is staffed by nurse practitioners and two physicians. We provide care for most problems for which you would see your family physician, including blood tests, immunizations, allergy shots, and other laboratory tests. Health-care needs such as sore throats, upper respiratory infections, bladder and gynecological problems and skin concerns can be evaluated and treated. If problems are outside our area of expertise, referrals will be made.
Counseling regarding health concerns such as diet, exercise, activities of daily living and smoking cessation are also addressed. Contraceptive services are available and sexually transmitted infections are evaluated and treated. Free HIV testing is provided. The staff will be glad to discuss your health concerns and are available for consultation.
Services are available by appointment. We have a same-day system for individuals who are acutely ill. Appointments may be scheduled for that day by calling 216-687-3649 at 8:10 a.m. Health & Wellness Services is located in SR 153.

Health & Wellness Services coordinates the Student Health Insurance program. Our goal is to offer the best possible health insurance coverage from an outside provider for the best price. We serve as the gatekeeper for students who purchase the student health insurance. In order for non-emergency visits to be covered, a referral from Health & Wellness Services is required, which helps keep the premium low for students. For more information about the student health insurance program, contact GM Southwest at 1-800-550-4870. To schedule an appointment at Health and Wellness Services call 216-687-3649.
Emergency and infirmary care is provided by area hospitals.
