Mary Walker Health Center, the primary care center for SUNY Oswego students, recently earned three-year reaccreditation in May from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, according to Angela Brown, the new director of student health services for the college.

Accreditation signifies that the health center has met the AAAHC's recognized national standards for quality health care, said Brown, who is a board-certified nurse practitioner. Among other measures, a representative of the organization made a day-and-a-half site visit during the spring semester. The three-year duration of the reaccreditation means that the AAAHC found no issues that needed remediation, she said.

Besides clinical care, Walker Health Center offers many wellness programs, including individualized smoking cessation plans, seasonal flu shots and reproductive health care.
