Q: Would it be possible to have a women’s health center on campus, for example, an obstetrician/gynecologist (ob/gyn)?
A: Student Health Services has long wanted to provide more extensive ob/gyn services, but a shortage of space had prevented that. The renovation of SUB I–slated for completion by fall 2002–will allow us to add three exam rooms and the other modifications needed to provide ob/gyn services. We are working with state licensing agencies and other regulatory bodies to meet the requirements for licensure. As that time nears, we will know more about the specific services that we will be able to provide and will share that information. –Mary Ann Braun, director of Student Health Services, x32832.
