Students who require x-rays, lab testing, or emergency room visits will be sent to Georgetown Community Hospital for these services which are provided on an outpatient basis. Georgetown Community Hospital is an advanced, 75-bed, acute care facility located at 1140 Lexington Road. The hospital boasts a medical staff of over 50 physicians who represent a wide range of specialties and up-to-date technology.
The health fee paid along with tuition covers student visits to the clinic. However, the student will be responsible for any charges for services provided outside of the clinic. Private insurance may be billed whenever applicable. Students are often covered by their parents’ insurance, or they may purchase student health insurance. Insurance brochures are located in the Student Wellness Center and in the Cralle Student Center.
Treatment After Hours?
After clinic hours and on weekends and holidays, students are advised to seek treatment from a local physician or The Georgetown Community Hospital Emergency Department. A partial listing of the local physicians, dentists, and hospitals are located on the front door of the Student Health Service Clinic. If a medical emergency occurs on campus, either the student or bystanders are to notify Campus Safety at extension 8111 or call 911 as necessary. When emergency services are utilized, students will cover the costs independently or through their private insurance.
