Welcome to University Wellness Services!

Office Hours: 8am-5pm, Monday through Friday

University Wellness Services, operating out of the Wellness Center, is the hub of all campus health and wellness services, and encompasses clinical, personal development and counseling, health promotion, public health, nutrition, and crisis response services.

Wellness Philosophy

At University Wellness Services, we believe that wellness is a way of life and involves achieving a balance among mind, body, and spirit.  Our approach to wellness with Northwest students involves education, prevention, and promoting self-responsibility in maintaining one's own health.

Attention Students!

If You Have Insurance, Billing Process for Lab Work Has Changed

Lab work ordered and drawn by University Wellness Services may be performed by outside laboratories, including:

  • Quest Diagnostics
  • Oxford Diagnostics (TB)
  • St. Francis Hospital

Because these laboratories may perform the tests and provide us with results, they will be filing insurance claims for lab work performed by them. This means that University Wellness Services will no longer submit these claims.

Impact to you, the student:

  • Students may receive a separate Explanation of Benefits from their insurance company, as lab work will now be submitted independently from other work performed by University Wellness Services.
  • If your insurance does not cover the cost of the lab work, you will receive a bill from these laboratories, rather than receiving a bill from University Wellness Services.

If you have any questions regarding these changes, please call us at 660.562.1348. Thank you!
