The Colorado State University (CSU), Health and Medical Center, would like to be part of your journey in prioritizing you and your wellness targets. They offer a comprehensive range of medical services to the Fort Collins community.
CSU’s Health Network has its home at the CSU campus. Here, students have access to a wide range of medical and mental health services. The university requires full-time students to carry medical insurance, but access to the Health Network is available to students, regardless of insurance providers. Students have access to primary care, reproductive health and disease screenings, mental health services, and peer-to-peer counseling, among other services.
Beyond CSU students, the CSU Health and Medical Center offers a variety of medical services to the public. Family medicine, for example, is available to members of the Fort Collins community through Associates in Family Medicine. AFM operates one of its health clinics inside of the CSU Health and Medical Center, and it is available to members of the community of all ages. Their medical clinics offer services in obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics and well-baby visits, vaccinations, sports medicine, management of chronic illness, geriatric medicine, adult primary care, and more. It is a comprehensive family health practice equipped to handle a broad scope of medical concerns.
Also housed within the CSU Health and Medical Center is a walk-in urgent care clinic operated by AFM. The clinic offers extended weekday and weekend hours, to treat members of the Fort Collins CSU health center community when an unexpected health concern arises. The urgent care health clinic at the Center can provide most of the care available in an emergency room.
Urgent care is an appropriate alternative to seeking emergency hospital care when the health issue is not life-threatening but requires medical attention within 24 hours. If a patient presents symptoms of a life-threatening problem, such as a stroke or heart attack, they should call 911 to receive medical attention as quickly as possible. A high fever with rash, uncontrolled bleeding or an amputation, poisoning, or other catastrophic injury or illness requires an immediate visit to an emergency room. Generally, high fevers in infants, even without a rash, indicate emergency care is needed.
CSU students who are part of the CSU Health Network and who require urgent care are encouraged first to call their Network provider, as often same day appointments can be scheduled. After hours, and weekends, they should go to the CSU urgent care clinic. Non-student members of the community are welcome to come directly to the health clinic, during clinic hours, whenever they need urgent care services.
