Important information for U-M students and other UHS patients

UHS is open during our usual business hours, and we are providing health care in new ways to meet your needs. 

If you have concerns and need guidance related to possible exposure or test results:

  • Please use the patient portal to contact your health care provider (you need an account) or
  • Call UHS at 734-764-8320. Nurse Advice is available day or night. (when UHS is closed, nurses cannot give test results, renew prescriptions, or make or cancel appointments)
  • For non-urgent matters, call UHS rather than the ER. 

Testing: As of 3/30/20, we are following guidance from Washtenaw County Health Department and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to test only Priority 1 and Priority 2 patients at this time:

Activate your patient portal: It's more important than ever for patients to activate your online MyUofMHealth patient portal. You can do so here.

Please schedule an appointment or call before visiting for health care. By calling, you can get advice about visiting, plus Nurse Advice by Phone day or night. Call 734-764-8320. We have been experiencing high call volume, and we apologize for any delays.
