The SXU Health Center is unique in that we serve students, faculty, staff and members of the community. We are a nurse practitioner-led primary care clinic that is open year-round and provides a variety of services for our patient population. Located at 3925 W. 103rd Street (Driehaus Center), our mission is to provide accessible and affordable holistic care that upholds the SXU standard for excellence.
Schedule an Appointment
The SXU Health Center is now offering COVID-19 testing to students, staff and faculty. At this time, we are unable to offer it to members of the community.
Testing is performed by appointment only. If you need a COVID-19 test please use our COVID-19 Reporting Form and someone from the Health Center will call you back to get more information and to set up an appointment if necessary. Please call 773-298-3712 with any questions.
All SXU students, faculty and staff who have tested positive for COVID-19, are experiencing
symptoms suspicious of COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 should
stay home and fill out our HIPAA-secure COVID-19 Reporting Form. Once we have received the report someone from the Health Center will call you back
as soon as we can to get more information and set up testing if needed.
At this time the Health Center does not have any COVID-19 vaccines. We have submitted an application to the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) to become a COVID-19 vaccine administration site, but there is no timeline about when that may occur. Currently, Chicago is still in Phase 1a of the vaccination process, prioritizing vaccination of health care workers and those in long-term care facilities. We will notify you as soon as we have any more information.
