Welcome to Westmont Health Center

The Health Center is committed to being on mission with Christ in our participation as health care providers in the movement of God's love towards people. We accomplish this by maintaining a staff with years of experience and training in the area of college health. As such, we are able to provide the excellent health care that is required for this unique population. By partnering with students in assuming responsibility for their own health care needs, we hope to equip these young adults with the skills needed to access health care throughout their lives.

**IMPORTANT INSURANCE CLARIFICATION. PLEASE READ**

It has come to our attention there is some confusion regarding the cancellation of Westmont's student insurance policy.  While this is true, this does NOT affect your ability to come to the Health Center to seek medical care.  The student insurance policy was meant to supplement any insurance you brought from home in the event you were referred OFF campus for medical reasons.  We do not require medical insurance to be seen here at the Health Center on campus.
