About McKinley Health Center
McKinley Health Center serves the students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The Health Service Fee, which is paid as part of your enrollment, provides the funds to prepay many of your health care needs. (See the Health Care Coverage page and the Health Care Coverage FAQ for information on the differences between the Health Service Fee and the Student Insurance Plan.) Some of the services provided by McKinley include:
McKinley can provide most of your non-emergency health care. Emergency care is provided by
area hospitals. If you have an emergency, call 911 (9-911 from campus.)
Carle Foundation Hospital or Provena Covenant Medical Center have emergency
departments and ambulance service.
Primary Care Providers
You're automatically assigned a
Primary Care Physician when you enroll. The goal is for you to see the same doctor
while you're at the University. Having a doctor who is familiar with you
and your needs increases the quality of care you receive. You can change doctors if you want, but all our
doctors are among the finest available.
Using McKinley couldn't be easier. If you're ill and think you need to visit McKinley, in most cases you'll start by contacting Dial-A-Nurse at 333-2700. This health care professional will answer many of your questions and suggest a course of action including scheduling an appointment if indicated. You can also schedule an appointment yourself on-line or by phone.
McKinley's convenient location is easily accessible to most of the UIUC Campus. We're located at 1109 S. Lincoln Ave. on the south-eastern side of campus. There is metered parking but check the parking tips section before your visit.
When you arrive at McKinley and have an appointment, use the convenient Self Check-in Stations to let us know you're here.
