Student Health Center Staff

Welcome to the Student Health Center. The Student Health Center aims to provide primary care and health education to the students of SNU, as well as the faculty and staff of Southern Nazarene University. The Christian atmosphere of the school is continued in the health services department.

The Student Health Center functions as a division of Student Development. It is directed by a registered nurse who reports directly to the Vice President for Student Development. A licensed physician in the state of Oklahoma provides: 1) support and assistance to the Director of Student Health Services via consultation, 2) primary care to SNU students, faculty, and staff at specified times at the Student Health Center and 3) authorization for ordering medications and various supplies. Several physicians in the local community also provide medical care to the students, faculty, and staff of SNU in local private offices on referral as needed. The Student Health Center is located on the bottom floor of the Webster Commons Building. As you exit the elevator or stairwell, it is immediately to your left. You can reach us by phone (405) 491-6605, FAX (405)491-6683 or email at

Health Insurance and Medical Referrals Tips

Southern Nazarene University  Health Center is dedicated to the provision of quality health care in a university setting. Our goal is to use health education and medical treatment to enhance student’s ability to achieve their academic goals and to lead healthy and productive lives.  From time to time, a referral from the Health Center to a medical specialist is recommended by our physician.  To accomplish referrals in a timely and efficient manner, it will be helpful to gather the information ahead of time.

  1. Review your insurance coverage with your student. 
  2. Give your student an insurance card/or copy of your insurance card (both sides).
  3. Check the list of Health Centers in-network insurance providers.
  4. Check to see if your insurance plan has specialty providers in Oklahoma City. If a referral is needed the Health Center staff will attempt to refer to an in-network provider.
  5. Check to see if a referral to a specialist needs to be made by the Primary Care Provider.
  6. Consider selecting a Primary Care Provider (PCP)  Dr. Ami Siems (our health center physician)
