Medical Resources


NOTE: Please call ahead. Resources and their hours change and it is best to call ahead to ensure the service is available when you need it. Additionally many of these providers require a prearranged appointment.

NOTE: Obviously if a student is very ill, our first suggestion would be to contact a qualified medical professional as soon as possible.

NOTE: We are providing these resources as a service to our community. It is not a recommendation of one provider over another. It is strictly information, so the consumer can make their own informed decision.
