A model of the new campus health center
Bowling Green State University and Wood County Hospital (WCH) have signed an agreement for the creation of the Falcon Health Center, a new University health center that will be operated by the hospital and replace the present Student Health Services building on campus. The new facility will be located at the corner of East Wooster Street and South College Drive.
"We're pleased and excited about this partnership with Wood County Hospital and what it will mean for our students," said BGSU President Mary Ellen Mazey.
"This new facility will enhance student health care, increase efficiency and benefit the broader community."
"Wood County Hospital takes care of many students and University staff in our hospital and clinics. Partnering with the University will help enhance campus-based service delivery and improve continuity of care," said WCH President Stan Korducki. "We look forward to having a 21st century facility to support care for the BGSU students, faculty and staff."
Wood County Hospital was selected through a competitive proposal process involving a number of University offices and constituencies, including BGSU students.
Construction is expected to begin this month with the goal of opening by the fall 2013 semester. Until then, the existing BGSU Student Health Services will continue to operate at its present location.
BGSU students provided input at every stage in the process. Project architects consulted with student focus groups and will use their feedback in designing the health center.   
The facility is expected to be two stories high, around 21,000 square feet and will complement the campus buildings across Wooster Street as well as the surrounding residential neighborhood.  
The first floor will have waiting and reception rooms, and business and consultation offices. Patient care functions include lab/blood draw, an X-ray room and holding area, changing room, pharmacy, approximately 16 exam rooms, procedure rooms, an IV area, wellness and patient education rooms, and a nurse station.
Parking for patients, visitors and staff is expected to be onsite and adjacent to the building.
All the services provided at the former BGSU Student Health Services will be provided at the Falcon Health Center.
