UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Due to unforeseen delays, the new Penn State Employee Health and Wellness Center will not open Jan. 3, 2017, as originally planned. Instead, the center is projected to open in mid-February, said Paula Milone-Nuzzo, dean of the Penn State College of Nursing, which is partnering with Penn State Health and Penn State Human Resources to operate the clinic.
“We look forward to providing employees with health care services in our central campus location,” Milone-Nuzzo said. “The delays we are experiencing are primarily related to construction, and these final approvals should be easily resolved.”
Located on the first floor of the Nursing Sciences Building, the walk-in center was conceived as a high-quality, convenient way to provide immediate care to full- and part-time employees who become ill at work and cannot make an immediate trip to their primary care provider. Patients who visit the center will be charged according to the provisions of their medical insurance plan.
