COVID-19 Office Update
In the interest of protecting your health and maintaining safe distancing practices, all visits to the Health Center will now be by appointment only. Please contact us at 215.489.2252 to schedule an appointment. All students will be triaged by a nurse via phone. If needed, a telemedicine visit will be scheduled. If it is determined that you need to be evaluated in the office, an appointment will be scheduled. We request you call us prior to entering the office so we can be prepared to care for you in the safest manner possible.
If you are concerned that you may have signs or symptoms of COVID-19, please refer to the CDC self-screener found here.
The Student Health Center's primary responsibility is to provide the highest quality nursing and medical care for the student/patient. The University makes every effort to have a positive impact on the health experiences of the student. Services available include health promotion and disease prevention, as well as illness treatment. This includes education for healthy lifestyles and disease prevention, a caring, supportive and confidential environment, and clinical expertise. Students are encouraged to use these services.
The scope of services provided by the Student Health Center includes, but is not limited to:
- Walk-in, acute medical care
- Medical visits by appointment
- Allergy injections
- Minor surgeries
- Laboratory services
- Many free medications
- Health education brochures
Medical services are available to the student on a daily basis, Monday through Friday. Medical conditions that require continuous care, specialized or surgical, are handled either by referral or a return to the primary physician at the student's expense. Medical records are strictly confidential and are released only with a student's written consent. Record-Release forms can be obtained at the Health Center.
Delaware Valley University assumes no financial responsibility for the medical, surgical or dental services required by the student.
