The original health center was started in 1927 on the east campus and moved to the current building in 1969. On September 11, 1986, Gordon and Elizabeth Sindecuse offered a substantial gift to the Western Michigan University endowment fund. At that time, it was the largest unrestricted gift ever received in the history of WMU. The donation resulted in the establishment of the Gordon and Elizabeth Sindecuse Endowment.
