  • Primary Care
    Student Health Services offers comprehensive preventive and outpatient health care services, primarily to Clemson University students. Physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and medical assistants are available to provide continuous, quality medical care. Patients are encouraged to make appointments to be seen for illness and injuries as they occur throughout their stay at Clemson.
  • Nurse's Clinic
    Although Redfern Health Center is not an emergency room or urgent-care clinic, we offer acute and/or urgent care for minor illnesses and injuries via our nurse’s clinic. In the nurse’s clinic, a registered nurse sees the patient, assesses the problem and takes appropriate action. If immediate physician intervention is needed, patients are referred to our CU Now provider.
  • Laboratory

    Student Health Services (SHS) is staffed by five medical technologists who are registered with the American Society of Clinical Pathologists. SHS' laboratory is accredited by the Commission on Office Laboratory Accreditation and has received the Laboratory Excellence Award.

    Fees for Laboratory Procedures

    A nominal fee is charged on laboratory procedures performed at Redfern Health Center. Laboratory specimens that need to be sent to outside reference laboratories are collected at Redfern and will be charged accordingly. Negotiated prices for reference laboratory services keep the cost reasonable for our patients.
