Dear Parents and Family Members:
Welcome to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. The transitions that are taking place in you and your student’s life can sometimes be overwhelming. To ease some of the concern that you may have about your student being away from home we have made available Student Health Services. The mission of UTC Student Health Services is to deliver high quality healthcare that is holistic in nature and easily accessible for all of the UTC community. We are committed to meeting the health service needs of our diverse population while treating each individual with dignity. Delivery of care will be collaboration between the health care provider and patient that is built on trust and mutual understanding.
At SHS we offer a variety of services to our UTC community such as treatment of acute illnesses, treatment of chronic illnesses, physical exams, allergy shots, well-woman exams, health education, and more. However, if we cannot meet your student’s specific needs we can refer him or her to a medical or health facility that can.
Our services are offered on campus in a convenient location for students, right across from the University Center. There is no fee associated with office visits for students. Students are only expected to pay a fee for services such as labs, tests, or medications, based only on the cost to SHS. In order to be of better service we ask that students schedule appointments which can be made Monday through Friday; however, we do accept walk-in patients when immediate attention is required. Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm. For any questions, please call us at 423-425-2266.
If there is anything I can do to aid in your student's healthcare transition, please let me know. You can contact me at email@example.com. I hope your student has a healthy successful year.
