Employees, Their Spouses and Dependents Covered by the University’s Health Plan May Obtain Services for Free or Discounted Rates

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—Gardner-Webb employees who are on the University’s health plan may now obtain the services offered by the Gardner-Webb Health Clinic for free. In addition, an employee’s spouse and dependents, who are on the GWU health plan, may now access the Clinic for a charge of $15 per visit.  

During the fall and spring semesters, the Clinic, 148 Memorial Drive, Boiling Springs, is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 to 5 p.m. Summer hours are 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The Clinic also offers virtual visits. Clients can meet with providers via phone or video calls during office hours. After hours and weekend support is available via the Nurse Triage Line as well as Atrium Health’s 24/7 virtual on-call provider that can provide care coordination.  

The Clinic offers the following services:

  • First aid/treatment for minor injuries.
  • Treatment for minor illnesses.
  • Lab work (e.g., blood work, allergy shots).
  • Student-athlete physicals.
  • Health education, training, and support.
  • Care coordination—If a client can’t find care, the Clinic will help them navigate their options and find the right solutions, quickly and confidentially.

  The GW Health Clinic can be reached at (980) 487-2390.  

Note: This benefit is being offered on a trial basis. The Gardner-Webb Health Clinic is primarily for students, who pay a fee for access to its services. If insured employee/spouse/dependent use of the Clinic impedes or limits student access, then employee/spouse/dependent access may be reduced or discontinued after 30 days’ notice to employees.
