What to do when the Student Health Center is closed?

Services

Our office offers routine care for minor illnesses and injuries as well as partnering with a student’s primary provider for continuity of care for chronic conditions. Our staff also provides consultation appointments for various health related concerns including referrals to area specialists. 

Allergy Services

Our office provides a convenient location for the continuation of your allergy management and treatment while you attend Meredith College. If you get regular allergy injections from an allergy specialist, under most circumstances you can transfer your allergy injections to the Student Health Center to ensure that your current treatment plan is continued.  Your allergy treatment must be initiated at your allergist office (receive at least one injection without adverse reaction) prior to your first appointment with our office.  If you are suffering from allergy symptoms but are not currently seeing an allergist, our office can provide you with a list of local allergy specialists.

Gynecological Services 

Gynecological services are available for a nominal fee to students on Wednesdays from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. Appointments must be made through the Health Center for this clinic. Note: The associated fee covers lab costs.

HIV/STD Clinic

The Student Health Center partners with the Wake County Health Department to offer confidential counseling and testing for HIV/STD on the second and fourth Wednesdays from 12-2 p.m. during the academic year.

Services are also available directly through the Wake County Health Department.

After-Hours Healthcare Resources

If you have a medical emergency or need assistance, please contact Wake EMS by dialing 9-911 from a campus phone, or 911 from any other phone. Then contact Campus Police by dialing 8888 from a campus phone, or (919) 760-8888 from any other phone.

If you have a serious but non-life-threatening condition, such as a laceration, minor injury such as a sprained ankle, fever, or vomiting, you may wish to visit a local urgent care facility instead of the hospital emergency room to keep your health care costs down.
