Facts About Summer Health Care 2009

Posted on 3/27/2009 8:00:00 AM

The Health Service will be available with limited hours for clinical care during Summer 2009 beginning May 4.

While the administrative office will be open throughout the summer from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for administrative support, clinical care will be offered from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Clinical hours will be staffed by registered nurses as well as either nurse practitioners or a physician. All of the services provided throughout the school year will be available by coordination with the nursing staff.

  • Services of the Center for Health and Well-Being are also available during the summer by contacting their offices directly.

For emergency care when we are not open, go to Indiana Regional Medical Center’s emergency department or call 911 (9-911 if on campus). There is a blue emergency phone at the front of the Center for Health and Well-Being (Suites on Maple East) at the corner of Pratt and Maple.
