Our History

Opening in January 1997, the Student Health Center is a collaborative effort with Washington Township Hospital Health Care District and the Ohlone Community College District, the first collaborative effort of its kind in California. Ohlone has served as a model for several other California community college health centers and hospital partnerships, including Las Positas College and Chabot College Student Health Centers. The Ohlone Student Health Center is supported, in whole, by a student health fee which is currently $22 per fall and spring semester, and $18 during the summer session.

The Ohlone Student Health Center is staffed by a group of dedicated professionals who are committed to promoting student health and wellness. We are a tight-knit family who take care of each other and are here to do the same for the Ohlone campus population.
