Wellness Center

As you may have noticed, the corner of Bulla Road and Wilson Drive is buzzing with activity, as construction on the new Notre Dame Wellness Center continues on schedule to open in July.

This full-service, state-of-the-art facility is part of Notre Dame’s commitment to enhancing health and wellness benefits for eligible faculty, staff and dependents. It can be utilized as your primary health care provider, or as a complement to your current primary health care provider.

According to John Affleck-Graves, executive vice president, “Providing access to services that improve the health and well-being of our faculty, staff and their dependents is a top priority for Notre Dame. We are very pleased that the new onsite wellness center will enable them to obtain quality health care and pharmacy services in a manner that is convenient, private and totally confidential.”

The Notre Dame Wellness Center and Pharmacy will be staffed and managed by Take Care Systems, a leader in providing workplace health care. All patient medical records will be maintained in accordance with Take Care’s stringent and well-documented security standards, as well as in compliance with all state and federal laws. No one’s personal health information will be shared with Notre Dame.

The highly qualified staff will include a full-time physician, nurse practitioner, physical therapist, registered nurses, full-time pharmacist and medical support personnel. The center will offer convenient hours for appointments and times for dropping off and picking up prescriptions.

The Wellness Center is open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday. On home football weekends, the facility will be closed Saturday but open 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. The pharmacy is open from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday.
