Joseph F. Sullivan Center
The Joseph F. Sullivan Center is an interdisciplinary health center at Clemson University! We are one of the oldest continuously operating nurse-managed health centers in the United States. The ongoing commitment of BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina has supported significant growth and has been instrumental in establishing programming, promoting sustainability and expanding outreach. An endowment honoring longtime chairman of the board, Joseph F. Sullivan, continues to anchor community health and wellness programming. Since 1978, the Joseph F. Sullivan Center has offered programs and services to improve the health, education, and well-being of individuals, families, and communities. The center provides opportunities for students and faculty to practice in state-of-the-art settings and for clients to have direct access to nursing services. The Sullivan Center works to provide health services to all employees, faculty and staff on Clemson University's campus. In addition to the work being done in the on campus clinic (located in 101 Edwards Hall), the Sullivan Center acquired a mobile health unit in 1990 to expand community outreach services and eventually became a model to provide outreach in rural and underserved communities. The mobile health unit is still being used with the Migrant Health Program
and Best Chance Network
, as well as in Oconee County each Friday for the Walhalla Mobile Clinic
. The Sullivan Center also works at the Free Clinic
in Clemson each Wednesday to provide services to members of the Clemson community.
