OHIO shares reminder of available campus, community health care resources

As we progress into the semester amid the reality of cold and flu season, Ohio University would like to remind everyone of the campus and local resources that are available to help keep our community healthy.

Please note: If you are currently experiencing severe or potentially life-threatening conditions, call 911 immediately.

Campus Health Care Resources

OhioHealth Campus Care provides a wide range of health services tailored to the specific needs of Ohio University students, including urgent care and primary care support. 

As is typical with the start of any new semester, OhioHealth Campus Care is anticipating an increased number of students who will seek care in the coming weeks:

  • Those in need of assistance with minor illnesses or injuries, including those experiencing cold or flu symptoms, are encouraged to skip the waiting room by scheduling a virtual health visit. 
  • Students may also consider scheduling a telehealth visit through their hometown medical provider.

Community Health Care Resources

Ohio University regularly collaborates with external health providers to help ensure students have access to timely medical care, and OHIO’s Chief Medical Officer has recently been in contact with many of our local healthcare providers to help ensure they are prepared to meet the potential for increased student demand in the coming weeks.
