Acute Care

_JDZ3357Engemann Student Health Center offers students a place to get help for an urgent medical need during our business hours. When the unexpected injury happens or attention to a sudden illness is needed right away, you may be seen at the student health center without an appointment.

Acute Care During Business Hours

The Acute Care department, also known as urgent care, is located on the first floor of the health center. Each patient that checks in will be evaluated by a registered nurse and seen based on their medical condition and urgency.

Come in Monday through Friday during our business hours or Saturdays or Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. No need to make an appointment.

Acute Care After Hours

Engemann Student Health Center is here to guide you in obtaining after-hours care when you really aren’t feeling well or are experiencing a crisis (e.g. traumatic event, thoughts of harming themselves or others).

Call the After-Hours Advice Nurse for Medical and Counseling Needs: (213) 740-9355

You’ll be prompted to follow recorded instructions (press 1 for medical and 2 for counseling) to make sure your needs are addressed. A nurse will assist you with any medical concerns and/or can connect you with an on-call counselor, if necessary.
