The Health Services medical staff includes a Family Nurse Practitioner with extensive emergency room experience, two experienced registered nurses, a dedicated administrative assistant and a remote consulting physician. Health services treat a wide variety of injuries and acute illnesses.   Students are encouraged to come to the Wellness Center for any issues.  If it is found that we are unable to care for the student’s needs, we will refer to a local Primary Care Physician office, Urgent Care or Emergency Room if necessary.
