El Centro Family Health has been operating the Highlands Student Health Center since 1992. This collaborative relationship benefits the Highlands community by bringing high quality health care to students and staff free of charge and at a discount to their family members.
Highlands University contracts with El Centro to help cover costs of care and provides the space for the clinic. A portion of student fees are used to help pay for this contract.
