Changes to Health Services
All initial appointments and most follow-up appointments will be done in person whenever possible, though students may utilize appointments via Zoom when mutually agreed upon with the provider.
For telehealth appointments, Bishop Wellness Center is using Zoom for Health Care, a video platform designed for health care providers. All audio/video communication is securely encrypted and transmitted from point-to-point such that even Zoom does not have access to any identifiable health information that may be communicated. Students can choose to schedule phone calls with providers as well.
To schedule an appointment, please visit the front desk or call 503-370-6062. If you need an appointment urgently, please let the front desk know you are requesting an immediate appointment.
You do not need the student insurance to use Bishop Wellness Center. We see students regardless of insurance coverage.

Statement on Diversity and Inclusion
The staff and providers of Bishop Wellness Center are committed to creating a safe, welcoming, and affirming environment for all. This includes students who access our services as well as all individuals who are part of larger Willamette community. We view diversity as encompassing intersecting identities, including ethnic/racial identity, nationality, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, religion/spirituality, socioeconomic status, age, body shape/size, ability, and point of view. We celebrate the differences among individuals as valuable and essential to the strengthening of our community and to the enrichment of the lives of our students. We acknowledge that this is a work in progress which will continue to evolve.
