The mission of the Lincoln University Health Services is to provide quality education regarding healthy life-styles and quality health care to its students.
Students are seen in Health Services by appointment only except in cases of emergency. Please call 484-365-7338 to schedule your appointment.
Students with emergencies after hours and on weekends should contact Public Safety to be transported to the nearest hospital (Jennersville Regional Hospital).
The Office of Health Services provides medical and health education services and programs for the University community that will meet the primary healthcare needs of the student, enhance personal growth and development, and support other University missions and goals. Health Services is located in the Wellness Center, Suite 100. Health Services Staff will evaluate and treat currently enrolled students for illness and injury. Our office is also responsible for assuring that all perspective students are cleared for admission. A current history and physical is required for all freshmen, transfer students, international students, and re-admits. Students who participate in any intercollegiate athletic program, including band, will require a history and physical annually. In addition to history and physical, up to date immunization records are also required in accordance with State Health Department and the Immunization Action Coalition recommendations and requirements.
Health Services is staffed with Registered Nurses and a Licensed Physician. Our physician is available three (3) days a week. Registered Nurses will assess students to determine the need to see the physician. Students will be seen by appointment only, except in rare cases of emergency. Additionally, Registered Nurses will administer allergy injections to students who provide their serums along with dosing and administration instructions. Appointments should be scheduled during the hours when the physician is on duty, and students are required to remain in Health Services for 20 minutes to ensure no adverse reactions (even if they have had, or have been getting allergy injections in the past). Depo-Provera injections will also be administered to females who provide the prescribed medication. All medical care and treatment is kept confidential in accordance with The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPPA) Privacy and Security Rules.
All students who are enrolled at Lincoln University must show proof of medical insurance; otherwise they are required to obtain Accident and Sickness Coverage through Lincoln University. Refer to the Student Affairs webpage to obtain insurance forms. If a student requires hospital treatment, or is referred to an outside physician in the local area, or the laboratory, they will be required to show proof of said medical coverage for billing purposes. Health Services and Lincoln University will not assume any liability for healthcare and/or medical costs incurred by students. All students enrolled at The University are eligible for medical care and treatment in Health Services at no cost. There is a fee ($10.00) for some over-the-counter and prescription medications, however, most over-the-counter medications will be supplied at no cost to the student. In addition to direct medical care, the Staff Nurses promote and educate The University on various health initiatives, are available to lecture as guests, and collaborate with other departments on health related topics. They also act as consultants in collaboration with the Chester County Health Department for public health issues.
