The best of care for Eureka’s best

A local contract with Advocate Eureka Hospital enables students to be seen by a physician on a limited basis. When necessary, referrals are made to local physicians. Each student must, upon enrollment, submit a detailed health history form for purposes of maintaining accurate medical records. This health history form is required prior to first registration at the College. In accordance with Illinois State law and College policy, students are required to have specific immunizations before enrollment.


Although Eureka College provides health service through a contract with Advocate Eureka Hospital, medical costs beyond contracted services are the responsibility of the student. Because current health care costs in some cases may be expensive, the College requires that all students show proof of insurance coverage prior to matriculation or accept the College’s approved insurance plan. Students competing in intercollegiate athletics are required to purchase athletic insurance specific to their individual sport regardless of current personal insurance coverage.
