Penn State Behrend staffs two centers to care for students’ health issues in an atmosphere of confidentiality and respect: the Health and Wellness Center and the Burke Urgent Care. The Health and Wellness Center is located in the Carriage House, adjacent to the Reed Union Building and Senat Hall. The Burke Urgent Care is our new satellite clinic and is located at the Burke Center in Room 110.
Both centers offer medical care and treatment for most illnesses and minor injuries, as well as on-site laboratory testing and medications to evaluate and treat most illnesses. For questions about on-site treatment of temporary illness or management of other health issues, contact the Health and Wellness Center at 814-898-6217.
When the Health and Wellness Center is closed, Police Services (814-898-6231) is available for emergency response on campus.
Parking is available according to the Police Services parking regulations. There is also one handicapped parking place located in the front of the Health and Wellness Center and a convenient ground-level entrance with an automatic door opener and elevator.
For your convenience, we now are able to accept insurance from most major health insurers at both the Health and Wellness Center and the Burke Urgent Care. We request that you provide us with your insurance information prior to or at your first visit. Please check with your insurance company to verify coverage of services. You can also visit our website for complete details about the insurance process.
Immunizations offer safe and effective protection from vaccine-preventable diseases. The United States is experiencing re-emergence of these diseases, in part due to factors such as un-immunized and under-immunized persons and global travel. University Health Services of The Pennsylvania State University strongly supports the use of vaccines to protect the health of our individual students and our campus community.
Please refer to Immunization Compliance for All Incoming Students for more information.
