Health Services

Health Services

Health services are provided through the School’s Health Center, located on the second floor in the North Wing of the Main Building. The Health Center staff provides care for students who visit for reasons of acute or chronic illness, medication administration, injury, and follow-up care. In addition to providing basic medical services, Miss Hall’s School’s health care professionals serve as a resource for health information and education.
 
A nurse is on duty for extended hours during the weekdays and for abbreviated hours on weekends. A nurse is always  on duty for all home athletics games. At times when the nurse is on-call and not in the Health Center, students needing assistance should contact the faculty member on duty or the late night resident on duty.
