Message from the Director
Welcome to the University of Houston Health Center. We are very pleased that you have decided to join us at the University of Houston. We will do everything possible to make your stay a healthy one. Our experienced team of health care providers are dedicated to the promotion of disease prevention, health maintenance, and wellness through education. The University of Houston Health Center is a comprehensive primary Health Care Facility. We offer affordable and accessible quality primary medical and mental health care. Our Pharmacy offers prescription and non-prescription medications at competitive prices often lower than off campus. Pharmacy services are available to all currently enrolled students, faculty and staff.
All currently enrolled students at the University of Houston, are eligible for all services of the Health Center. We do offer a Health Insurance Program endorsed by and designed especially for the University of Houston. The University of Houston strongly encourages all students to carry health insurance; however insurance is not required to be seen by our health care professionals.
University of Houston faculty and staff members are able to receive general patient services at the UH Health Center. Services are rendered on a first-come, first-served basis, and the cost is reasonable. The Health Center Pharmacy is able to fill prescriptions from faculty/staff members' current physicians. The benefit of receiving medical care on campus is not only convenient but also desirable. Faculty and staff are welcomed to the Health Center for emergency and non-emergency medical needs.
The Health Center is financed by Student Service Fees and fees for services. A fee is charged for professional services, medications, laboratory procedures, and injections. Our prices are very competitive.
If you have a problem or question, please stop by the Health Center. Safeguarding your health is of primary importance to us.
Good luck in your academic pursuits and always remember that we are here for a Healthier you.
Floyd W. Robinson, Director
