December 16, 2021 | 2 min. to read
More than 30,000 students each year seek healthcare services at the Searle Building on the Northwestern University campus in Evanston.
On December 12, Northwestern Medicine welcomed the physicians and employees of Northwestern University Health Services clinic and sports medicine to Northwestern Medical Group. The student health and sports medicine clinics on the Evanston campus are now Northwestern Medicine Student Health Service.
NM Student Health Service expands the longstanding relationship between NM and NU. Students and student athletes will continue to access care on the NU campus in Evanston, where physicians, APPs and care team members treat 30,000 students per year. In addition, NU students now have access to all Northwestern Medicine locations, including the Northwestern Medicine Immediate Care Center and multi-specialty outpatient facilities in Evanston. Other benefits include the use of a common medical record in NM Epic and the MyNM patient portal.
“With a shared commitment to excellence and putting patients first, we understand the value of a comprehensive health service for NU students,” says Phillip E. Roemer, MD, vice president, operations and chief medical officer, Northwestern Medical Group. “We are proud to provide the NU community with convenient access to our integrated academic health system, both on our downtown campus and in Evanston.”
“We are thrilled to connect our award-winning experts in collegiate health at NU with the nationally ranked medical experts at NM,” says Julie Payne-Kirchmeier, vice president for Student Affairs at Northwestern University. “Together, we can provide this state-of-the-art service; our students deserve nothing less.” NM currently operates all clinical services, X-ray and lab services. The NU Pharmacy will transition to NM in February 2022. NU will continue to manage behavioral health services, including Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), Health Promotion & Wellness (HPaW) and the Center for Awareness, Response & Education (CARE) on the Evanston campus.
Legacy NUHS clinic and sports medicine physicians and employees will continue to practice in their existing location with the same hours and contact information in Evanston, Illinois.
