Student Life

Health Services

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 athletic 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.
