Health Care Resources
For on-campus health care emergencies, call 911. For routine health needs, students can contact Kettering Health Network’s physician referral program, Physician Hospital Alliance, at (937) 384-6950, or U.S. Health Works Medical Group in Huber Heights (north) at (937) 237-6231, in Moraine/Kettering (central) at (937) 293-7770, or in Franklin (south) at (937) 746-8795. The Physician Hospital Alliance, serving health needs throughout the Miami Valley, arranges appointments usually within one business day. Family practice physicians at U.S. Health Works Medical Group are equipped to provide health consultations and immunizations. Students must show a valid Kettering College student ID card for service. At these facilities, students are responsible for the cost of consultation or treatment and are expected to pay at the time of service.
Students who become injured while on campus are advised to consult with their physician or with U.S. Health Works Medical Group. Should urgent medical care be required, 24-hour medical service is available in the KMC emergency department or any other network emergency department. Payment for treatment is the student’s responsibility. Student injuries on campus should also be reported to the patient relations department of Kettering Medical Center, using an “occurrence report” available at the College front desk.
U.S. Health Works Medical Group extends alternative payment arrangements to Kettering College students. If the student is unable to pay at the time of service, payment can be made through the method described below:
- The student will sign a form authorizing U.S. Health Works Medical Group to submit the bill to Kettering College student finance for posting on the student’s account.
- U. S. Health Works Medical Group will submit the bill in timely fashion to the Kettering College student finance office.
- The student finance office will post the bill to the student’s account.
- The charge will show on the student’s monthly bill, generally within one month of receipt from U.S. Health Works Medical Group.
Communication with any insurance companies will be the responsibility of the student and/or his or her family, not of U.S. Health Works Medical Group or the student finance office.
