EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

Starting in June, the University of Evansville will be providing an on-campus medical clinic for its employees.

The Director of Human Resources at UE says the clinic will compliment the current student health center.

The two programs will share the same building and some of the same staff.

The director is excited to see both programs in operation.

"It saves money for our employees so it's a benefit for them. They are getting free labs, free prescriptions, free office visits, and it is all being offered in the convenience of a location here on campus," said Keith Gehlhausen, Director of Human Resources, University of Evansville.

"It really creates and fosters an environment where people are more likely to go to the doctor to go back and to continue to pursue things both from a wellness standpoint and from diseases to get things fixed and them improve their health care," said Chad Perkins, Chief Medical Officer of Tri-State Community Clinics.

The clinic is set to open on June 3.
