Emergency Services

Call 9-1-1 for an ambulance to take you to the emergency room at either Cottage Hospital or OSF St. Mary Medical Center, both in Galesburg.

Please note that the Health Services fee does not cover ambulance service or emergency room care.

Missing Class

If you miss a class due to an illness, contact your professor prior to missing the class. Please follow class guidelines regarding absences due to illness. The Health Center will provide medical documentation, upon request, for students they feel have legitimate health problems that require class absences. Extended class absences or missed examinations should be reported by the student to the Associate Dean of the College as soon as possible.

Follow recommendations

After visiting a health care provider, make sure you have a clear understanding of the best way to get you back on your feet. This is the time to ask questions. Ask the provider to write down recommendations, so you have them available as needed. Fill your prescriptions as soon as possible. Return back to your health care provider if your symptoms worsen.
