Students who have a health concern, become sick or injured, should come to the Wellness Center for evaluation and/or treatment during regular office hours: Monday - Friday, 8:00am - 5:00pm.

Although Student Health Services will remain open during the campus closure for students remaining on campus, we are asking that students who are experiencing any of the potentially communicable symptoms listed below to call Student Health Services at 864-388-8885 prior to coming to the office.

Avoid coming to the office if you are experiencing:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath 
  • Nausea 
  • Vomiting 
  • Diarrhea

A nurse will be available on campus Monday – Friday from 8am – 5pm for emergency situations, and to answer calls and direct students remaining on campus on how to access appropriate care for their presenting condition.  If you are asked by the nurse to come to the Wellness Center for assessment, please come unaccompanied if you are able.  In the interest of social distancing, we do not want to encourage people to frequent publicly occupied spaces if they are able to avoid it.

A Registered Nurse is available on campus for routine nursing treatments when school is in session, during office hours. Students who need medical care must see the Campus Nurse, who will provide routine nursing treatment and determine if additional medical treatment is needed.

After-hours and on weekends, students who are sick should call 8222 (University Police) for assistance.

Services of medical personnel (other than those with the Montgomery Center for Family Medicine) as well as the cost of medications, treatments, x-rays, etc., prescribed by a physician are the financial responsibility of the student.

The Montgomery Center for Family Medicine will not treat students for chronic illness present before entering Lander University. The Student Health Services fee does not provide for the cost of a general physical exam.

Some over-the-counter medications are available at Health Services; however, students should bring to campus a personal supply of basic medications that are usually taken at home for minor illness.

It is a good idea to bring:

  • Heating Pad
  • Cool Mist Humidifier
  • Thermometer
  • Any physician-prescribed medications for current illnesses

Allergy shots are not given at the Student Health Services. We can arrange for a student in need to receive this service from the Montgomery Center for Family Medicine. Please contact our office at 864-388-8885 for more information.

If the Campus Nurse determines that additional medical treatment is needed, the student will then receive a referral to go to the Montgomery Center for Family Medicine which is a contracted physicians’ office.
