VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A new clinic is offering easy access to health care.
Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College held a ribbon cutting Friday for their new facility.
The clinic is on the college's campus and is open to SMWC students and staff as well as the Sisters of Providence.
Patients can get flu shots, some health treatments, lab tests, and physical exams. A nurse practitioner and support staff will run the clinic.
The clinic is in collaboration with Union Medical Group.
“Improving access and providing points throughout, really close to home, in this case, where the students attend here at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods,” explained Steve Holman, President and CEO, Union Medical Group. “Just as good for all. Many times, it means providing services from a wellness prospective so they don't get sick.”
The clinic opened about one month ago and they say they've already been very busy with the flu season.
