Local Care Resources

Minute Clinics

If you are unable to visit our office or your primary care doctor and need to see a health care provider quickly, visit a walk-in Minute Clinic, which is capable of performing physicals, administering vaccines, and accommodating sick visits for sore throats, earaches, coughs, urinary tract infections, etc.  It is best to go as close to opening hours as possible.  You will need to provide your own transportation, but here are some locations in close proximity to campus:

Emergency Room

After-hours care for life threatening emergencies should be directed to a local emergency room.  Albert Einstein Medical Center is the closest in proximity to La Salle University. Transportation is provided by La Salle’s Public Safety Department (215.991.2111), who can contact Philadelphia Rescue as needed.  Public Safety will also contact the Resident Assistant or Resident Coordinator on call, accordingly. Abington Memorial Hospital (215.481.2450) and Chestnut Hill Hospital (215.248-8568) are both about twenty minutes away. Students have to provide their own transportation.
