Student health center earns accreditation

The Health Center at California State University, East Bay has earned the seal of approval from the national organization that promotes quality health care services in the outpatient clinic environment.

The student health center, located on both the Cal State Hayward and Concord campuses, received a three-year re-accreditation from Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, signifying the university has substantially complied with the rigorous standards of care being evaluated. Accreditation is a voluntary process through which an ambulatory health care organization is able to measure the quality of its services and performances against nationally recognized standards the accrediting body established. The Student Health Center, with a staff of over 25 employees, including physicians, counselors, nurses, nurse practitioners and administrative personnel, serves about 80 to 100 students a day.

Students visit the clinic for a wide range of no-cost and low-cost  health needs. The clinic provides basic medical care for most illnesses and injuries as well as eye exams, psychological counseling and massage therapy. The center has pharmacy, laboratory, X-ray and physical therapy services and a two-day per week optometry clinic.
