Many students are unaware of the health facilities the St. Clair College Health Centre has to offer in downtown Windsor.

The Health Centre offers pregnancy testing, bloodwork, smoking cessation, STI testing, health counselling and education on sexual health. Treatment is provided for staff and students at St. Clair and anyone involved with the University of Windsor’s social work department if they provide their student ID and health card.

Nancy Costa is a registered nurse at the centre and she wants students to be aware of the services.

“A lot of the students believe that they have to go over to main campus because that’s such a large clinic setting, but we do have the ability to take care of you. If I can’t meet your needs then I will put you in the right direction to those that can,” said Costa.

The clinic also has a nurse practitioner in every Thursday who is seen by appointment to perform physical examinations and write prescriptions.

Marcus Harrison is a student at St. Clair College studying in the Community and Justice Services program. He said he believes the Health Centre is not any different from going to a regular doctor.

“They ask you the same general questions and they’re able to do the same stuff to figure out what might be wrong with you,” said Harrison.

The Health Centre at St. Clair’s Centre for the Arts is open Tuesdays to Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in room B014 in the basement.
