SNU Health Center

Welcome to the SNU Health Center

The SNU Health Center aims to provide primary care and health education to the students of SNU, as well as the faculty, staff, and dependents of Southern Nazarene University. The Christian atmosphere of the school is continued in the health services department.

The Health Center functions as a division of Student Life. It is directed by a registered nurse who reports directly to the Executive Vice President. A licensed physician and physician assistants in the state of Oklahoma provides 1) support and assistance to the Director of Student Health Services via consultation, 2) primary care to SNU students, faculty, and staff at specified times at the SNU Health Center, and 3) authorization for ordering medications, labs, and various supplies. Several physicians in the local community also provide medical care to the students, faculty, and staff of SNU in local private offices on referral as needed. The SNU Health Center is located on the bottom floor of the Webster Commons Building. As you exit the elevator or stairwell, it is immediately to your left. You can reach us by phone (405) 491-6605, FAX (405)491-6683, or email at healthcenter@mail.snu.edu.

All your medical records remain strictly confidential, and only Health Center personnel have access to them. We do not release information of records for any reason unless we have specific written consent.
