About Taylor Health and Wellness Center

 About Us

Who we are and what we do

Taylor Health and Wellness Center is conveniently located on the Missouri State University campus next to the University bookstore. The medical and professional staff at Taylor Health and Wellness Center are dedicated to providing quality health and preventive care at minimum cost to the University community. Taylor provides medical services to all members of the University community, ages 6 years and older. Those with younger children should seek the services of a pediatrician or family practitioner who specializes in caring for younger children.

Quality care and services

Taylor Health and Wellness Center is a medical home for the MSU community. To ensure quality, Taylor Health and Wellness Center is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) and the Commission on Office Laboratory Accreditation (COLA). COLA recently awarded Taylor Health and Wellness Center Laboratory the Laboratory Excellence Award, the commission’s highest commendation. Our qualified staff of physicians, nurses, technicians, pharmacists and medical support personnel look forward to serving your health and wellness needs.

Taylor Health and Wellness Center moving to temporary location soon

Taylor Health will move to temporary quarters in the Monroe Apartments during construction of the new clinic. 

During Homecoming week this semester, students voted overwhelmingly to pass a referendum to build a new Health and Wellness Center.

Architectural drawing of student health and wellness centerThe new Health and Wellness Center will:

  • Double the space available for health care and wellness teaching
  • Provide increased comfort, services and privacy for our patients
  • House the Student Counseling Center
  • Feature a convenient drive-through pharmacy
  • Establish a Women’s Health Center
  • Give free strep, mono, CBC, and urinalysis testing for students—done in the Taylor lab
  • Offer free Sports Medicine Clinic evaluations for students by a Certified Athletic Trainer
  • Expand hours to include an evening clinic and a Saturday morning clinic
  • Dedicate a Travel Clinic—with free consultation services for students
  • Allow consultant space for clinics, such as dermatology, gynecology, orthopedics, dietetics, diabetic counseling, psychiatry, and others

The current Taylor will be de-constructed early in the fall of 2016 and new construction will commence.

During this time, full clinical, pharmacy and wellness services will continue across the street in the first floor of the Monroe Apartments.

The Monroe Apartments are LEED certified, built with security in mind, and have a front desk staff 24 hours per day.
