Through a partnership with the Western School of Nursing, a "Wellness Centre" operates at Grenfell on a part-time basis during the academic year. The centre is staffed by faculty and senior students from the school of nursing. The role of the centre is to enhance education and awareness of various lifestyle, health, and well-being issues relevant to students at university. Some of the services available include:
- Health Assessment
- Health Teaching (nutrition, lifestyle)
- Referral to other health professionals (physician, counselor, dietitian, communicable disease nurse)
- Screening (BMI)
- Health Promotion Campaigns (smoking, STI's, nutrition, drugs/alcohol)
Grenfell Campus students seeking medical attention can visit the Broadway Family Health Clinic. The Clinic is located on the third level of the Downtown Health Centre, 3 Herald Avenue.

Also, Student Services is continuing to search for a doctor to come to campus at least one half day a week to provide on-site medical services. Please contact Student Services for more information.
