We are located in Newman Hall, room 121. Service is provided by a registered nurse and three Nurse Practitioners with different areas of professional expertise. With the exception of immunizations and lab procedures, all services are free. The focus of the Health Services Clinic is on health promotion, disease prevention and holistic health. All Bellarmine students; full time, part time and graduate students, both residents and commuters, may use any of the services offered.
Nurse practitioners are available by appointment. Please visit the Patient Portal to see their availability.
Use of the Health Services Clinic is completely voluntary. Bellarmine University follows HIPAA regulations. All health records are confidential and, except in cases specified by law, may not be disclosed except when authorized by the student.
Services are offered to all students currently enrolled including part time, commuters, and graduate students. Students that graduate, transfer or are no longer enrolled for any reason are no longer eligible. The clinic is happy to help these students with a referral.
In an effort to ensure the health and safety of our patients and clinic staff, all scheduling, patient check in, and vitals triage will be done via phone. This means our staff will speak to all patients via phone to determine if your visit can be completed through a tele-health appointment using Microsoft Teams or an in-person visit at the clinic. Walk-ins are greatly discouraged; appointments must be made by calling 502-272-8313. A trained Medical Assistant will ask you a series of non-invasive questions regarding your symptoms and they will schedule your appointment, provide further instructions, and verify your contact information for future correspondence. Please visit our website for more complete information regarding changes to clinic operations. Our website will be updated regularly, as government and university requirements and regulations change.
The Bellarmine University Health Services Department seeks to enhance the educational experience by providing quality treatment, programming, and education aimed at maintaining physical health and wellbeing as well as empowering students to make self-directed, informed decisions about their personal health and wellness, and thus become informed consumers of health care.
