JCSU reveals a new on-campus health center operated by Atrium Health, free to students without increasing the cost of tuition.

City Metro reports that the university entered a multi-year agreement with Atrium where the health care company committed $3 million in support of JCSU as part of a $250 million Mayor’s Racial Equity Initiative. Roughly half of Atrium’s commitment to the university will go to the staff and support the health center.

The JCSU Health Center will offer services including:

  • testing for common illnesses
  • chronic condition management and monitoring
  • wellness exams and athletic physicals
  • routine lab work
  • sexual health
  • vaccinations

The center also will provide a limited on-site pharmacy and over-the-counter medications as well as electronic medical records and referrals to off-site care if needed.

JCSU faculty and staff will also have limited access to the center.

Atrium continued its support to JCSU by committing $1.5 million from a newly created Bishop George E. Battle Jr. Scholarship Fund to go toward scholarships and pipeline programs for students who are pursuing careers in health care.

Atrium President and CEO Eugene A Woods said in a statement that “health, education, and access to opportunity are the essential building blocks of a bright future for our community.”
