The Notre Dame Wellness Center, the first medical facility of its kind on a university campus, opened Wednesday with blessings and a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The Wellness Center offers primary medical care (including family and internal medicine and women's health services), pediatrics, laboratory services, a drive-thru pharmacy, physical therapy, and occupational health services.  Staff will include physicians and medical practitioners who are Board Certified in Internal Medicine or Family Practice.  The full suite of health services will be available to faculty, staff and their eligible dependents.

“The health and well-being of our employees are important priorities for the University,” said Robert McQuade, vice president for human resources, in an earlier press release. “By implementing this innovative solution, we are furthering our commitment to provide the resources and benefits necessary to ensure our faculty and staff have access to quality, affordable medical care.”

The wellness center will be operated by Take Care Health Systems, a Walgreens subsidiary that is the largest and most comprehensive manager of worksite health and wellness centers and in-store convenient care clinics, with more than 700 locations throughout the country.

The Health Center is located at the corner of Wilson Drive and Bulla Road on the northeast corner of Notre Dame's campus. It will be open to full-time to Notre Dame faculty staff, and their dependents.  

Hours: Monday to Friday from 7 a.m to 7 p.m., and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon.  For more information about the health center, head to the Wellness Center site.
