University Health Center (UHC) is a MedExpress, operated by Covenant Health Care Systems. The Center is staffed with board-certified physicians, physician's assistants, nurse practitioners, specially trained nurses and lab technicians. A primary care physician operates a practice in the clinic located at the adjoining site. The physician is Kathleen Skelcy, DO.

Patients may contact UHC to set up their account in advance of making use of the Center for urgent medical matters. While potential users of UHC are invited to “walk-in” for treatment during hours of operation, it is possible to set up appointments in advance.

Should you require more emergency care than expected, University Health Center is affiliated with the Covenant Emergency Care Center and has a direct line to Mobile Medical Response (MMR) for transport.
