Health Services is Currently Closed to Appointments
We are actively searching for a provider and expect to be open for appointments soon. In the interim, there are a number of community options available to students.
Most insurance and health providers have nurse advice lines available for members. They are usually listed on the back of your insurance card or on their website. This is a great way to get many of your questions answered without needing to schedule an appointment.
You can contact a community provider, such as a primary care doctor whom you've previously seen and ask what services they are offering.

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.
