During Office Hours:
The Health & Wellness Center is staffed Monday through Friday. If a student has an emergency during these hours, please call the Center at 610.568.1467 and a staff member will determine the appropriate level of care needed for the emergency at hand or call Public Safety, 610.796.8350. If immediate help is needed and Health & Wellness Center staff will respond to the emergency with Public Safety.
Alvernia University’s Health & Wellness Center is not an emergency care center. The staff will administer first-aid and stabilize an emergency condition until ambulance personnel arrive for transport. Students are referred to a near-by hospital or urgent care center for emergency medical care. If an ambulance is required, the cost of this transport is the responsibility of the student.
If a health problem requires immediate attention when the Health & Wellness Center is closed, please contact Public Safety at 610.796.8350 or dial 911.
Routine medical complaints should be seen during regular office hours. Schedule an appointment with the Health & Wellness Center by calling 610.568.1467 and leave a message at any time; someone will return the call the next business day to schedule an appointment.
If a medical concern of a residential student cannot wait until normal business hours, contact Residence Life staff (RA) who will contact the physician on call for questions and concerns or can locate the closest urgent care center.
