Moffitt Health Center increases the square footage of a the student clinic by 30 percent. This provides space for laboratory and X-ray activity, bigger health care provider work areas and a more accessible pharmacy and dental care area. There will also be an addition of 15 private exam rooms to increase patient confidentiality and efficiency and separate sick visit and well visit waiting rooms.

“This facility is better than I could have ever expected,” said Virginia Crawford, director of Student Health Services, said in the press release. “It is here to enhance the wellness culture for our campuses. I can’t wait for students, faculty, and staff to utilize it.”
