After Hours Care
For life threatening emergencies please call the Department of Public Safety: 717-358-3939 and/or 911.
For urgent but not emergency needs, you can visit one of the local urgent care facilities. For continuity, we encourage you to go to one of the Lancaster General Health Urgent Care facilities when the Student Wellness Center is closed. Students who need assistance with transportation can speak with public safety about a possible taxi voucher. Remember to take your health insurance card with you to the Urgent Care or Emergency Department.
Go to http://lghealthurgentcare.org to view exact locations, hours of operations, the current wait time at either facility, and to reserve your spot in line.
