Health Service


The Health Service is staffed by three certified mid-level practitioners, two nurses, and a administrative assistant. A registered dietitian is also available for consultations and appointments. Collaboration with physicians at the St. Peter Clinic, the Daniels Clinic, and the River's Edge Hospital & Clinic is an integral part of our practice.

Inclusivity Statement

Gustavus Health Service is committed to maintaining a community which recognizes and values the inherent worth and dignity of every person; promotes acceptance, sensitivity, understanding, and mutual respect among its members; and encourages each individual to strive to reach their own potential. We believe the diversity among the many members of Gustavus Adolphus College strengthens the institution, stimulates creativity, promotes the exchange of ideas and enriches campus life.


Appointments to be seen at the Health Service can be made by calling 507-933-7630. To schedule enough time for your appointment, you will be asked the reason for your visit. If you are uncomfortable providing a reason for your visit, you may always ask to speak directly with a nurse about your health concern. All appointment information is treated with strict confidentiality.
