Planning Campus Health Care Services 2.
Douglas, Bruce L.
Planning for Higher Education, v4 n2:5/5 Apr 1975
In a context of forecasts of major changes for America's entire health care system, colleges and universities are exploring the implications of new trends in campus health care delivery. On January 30-31, 1975, the Society for College and University Planning sponsored a workshop on "Campus Health Care Services" in Chicago to discuss such issues as the repercussions of strong consumer demands for broader and more accessible health services, the emergence of health maintenance organizations, and concerns for improved campus/community relations. This article taken from that workshop surveys the types of treatment and programs required on campuses. The advantages of integrating the entire health care system into the basic structure of the institution are emphasized. Special mention is made of early detection programs, costs of health treatment, rehabilitation programs, psychiatric help, dental care, health insurance programs, and staffing and financing of health services.
