Multicultural Health Center

Multicultural Health Center

The Multicultural Health Center (MCHC) is located in apartment 2040-A Orchard Street in the Orchard Downs community in Urbana.

The MCHC works to deliver culturally sensitive illness prevention, health, fitness, and wellness information and services to the families of the Family & Graduate Housing Community. Services are provided on a first come, first served basis.

Feel free to stop by for baby weigh-ins, or come and pick up some beneficial health information handouts on seasonal safety, pre-natal health, stress management, and other common health or wellness concerns.


The MCHC is open every Monday from noon to 3 p.m. during the academic year. There are no clinic hours during the summer.

Be sure to check your monthly newsletter for changes in hours and other updates. For more information, contact the MCHC Graduate Assistant (GA) at
