Director's Message

A student’s university experience and academic success is intimately associated with their overall health and wellness. As Director of Student Health Services (SHS), I am proud of the services we offer FGCU students to assist them when they are sick, to educate them on healthy lifestyle choices, and to protect them through vaccination, education and accessibility.

Student Health Services is proud to announce that we have recently been re-accredited for three years (March 15, 2017) by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). This is an important milestone in the continuing growth and success of our health care organization. Pursuing accreditation shows our commitment to providing the highest levels of quality care to our patients, and the same high level of quality in our business practices. Achieving accreditation by AAAHC is proof that we have met the rigorous standards of a nationally recognized third party. We are proud to have met the challenge of accreditation, and intend to consistently uphold the principles of quality improvement in patient care in the future.

SHS is funded by a portion of student health fees allowing us to provide high quality care at a minimal cost to our patients. Our staff is committed to providing care to students in a manner that not only allows them to focus on their academic goals but also enhances their medical knowledge and thereby encourages healthy behaviors and choices. I hope that all of our students will take advantage of the services we provide.

Kevin J. Collins, MD
