Mission Statement

"When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless and intelligence cannot be applied." - Herophilus

Health & Wellness Center (H&WC) understands that full intellectual potential can only be achieved in a healthy body, mind, and spirit.  H&WC further recognizes that access to quality health care and social justice is inextricably interconnected.  To this end, H&WC accepts its mission to provide the undergraduate students of Saint Mary’s College of California with accessible, compassionate, and confidential health care that meets the standards of an urgent care medical model. 

In addition, H&WC will collaborate with other offices on and off campus to promote individual patient education and public health awareness of the College.  H&WC embraces the diversity of its patient population and the community it serves with mutual respect and understanding.  In doing so, the H&WC contributes to the enhanced learning potential of the students and furthers the mission of Saint Mary’s College of California.
