After-hours care for life threatening emergencies such as, but not limited to, chest pain, shortness of breath, acute abdominal pain, or loss of consciousness, should be directed to a local emergency room. Albert Einstein Medical Center is the closest in proximity to La Salle University. Transportation is provided by La Salle’s Department of Safety and Security (215-991-2111), who can contact Philadelphia Rescue as needed. Security will also contact the Assistant/Community Assistant or Resident Coordinator on call, accordingly.
