UD University Health Center Update

In May the University of Dubuque began construction on a health center that will be located near the intersection of Grace and Algona Streets. The center will provide students with a first point of access for outpatient and preventative medical care services. UD President Dr. Jeffery Bullock says the “Smeltzer-Kelly Health Center is the brainchild of UD grad “Campus Mom” Barbara Smeltzer, who is the school’s student resources advisor and her husband Jack. Bullock says they’re working on staffing for the health center right now. The center will also provide brain health care. UD’s partnership with Finley Hospital will continue even when the new center is completed. The 1.1 million dollar health center is scheduled for completion next fall. The Smeltzers contributed a half million towards the project.
