Student Health Clinics
Welcome to the RRCC Student Health Clinics
The RRCC Student Health Clinics are located at both the Lakewood and the Arvada Campuses. The Student Health Clinics are medical clinics staffed by certified and licensed medical providers. We provide nearly all general medical care that would be similar to visiting a Family Practice Clinic.
In 2011-12, the RRCC Student Government pursued and succeeded in getting the majority study body vote to support the construction and implementation of a Student Health Clinic. The Lakewood campus clinic opened in September 2012 and continues to serve the needs of all RRCC students. Then, as RRCC administrators pursued a large addition to the Arvada campus in 2015 that would have a focus on Health and Sciences, the Director of Student Health, Johnna Jaynstein, MMS, PA-C, saw a need for a second clinic in Arvada. The Arvada Student Health Clinic will be opening in the Fall of 2016 providing medical and behavioral health services.
How it works:
The Student Health Clinics are supported by fees. All RRCC students have access to the services at the clinic. If you have not automatically paid the clinic fee, you have the ability to "opt in" by paying the fee (approximately $21 per semester/$11 in the summer) at the cashiers department.
Visits with the medical providers on campus are free of charge (no co-pay) for students. You do not need health insurance to be seen in the Student Health Clinic.
The clinic charges minimal fees for various services to cover the cost of materials (ex: stitches, wart removal, vaccinations, etc.)
For Employees: New Spring 2016!
The Student Health Clinic is now offering medical services to all RRCC staff, faculty, and employees for a co-pay of $30 per visit. All medical services and pricing for procedures will remain the same for staff members. Please bring a valid employee ID to your visit. We take credit cards and checks at the clinic. This clinic does not process health insurance.
