Student Health Center at SNU

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 Life. It is directed by a registered nurse who reports directly to the Associate Dean for Wellness. 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 studenthealth@snu.edu.

All your medical records remain strictly confidential, and only Student Health Center personnel have access to them. We do not release information of records for any reason unless we have specific written consent.
