Health & Wellness
Health Services


Health Services and its affiliated departments aim to provide primary care that is patient-centered, high-quality, confidential, easily accessible, and responsive to students' needs.

Health Services recognizes that physical and emotional health and well-being are necessary for the student to devote meaningful efforts to the stated goals of education and self-discovery. Partnering with students, we provide holistic care that is respectful of students' personal, cultural and social identities; thus becoming a space for education, self-discovery, and intellectual growth.

Accreditation and Quality Care

Brown Health Services is accredited through January 2022 by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), the nation's leading accrediting organization of outpatient facilities.

Being accredited means that we have undergone rigorous professional scrutiny by highly qualified AAAHC professionals and found to provide quality care. It also means that the organization:

  • was visited by experienced AAAHC health care professionals
  • was measured against nationally recognized standards of care
  • demonstrates a strong commitment to maintaining patient safety
  • is dedicated to protecting your privacy
  • meets all federal, state, and local laws as well as AAAHC Standards for the care it provides

If you have a quality or safety concern, you are encouraged to contact the Associate Director at Health Services at 401-863-7872 or via email at
