Local Health Care/Emergencies



If you are unable to visit our office or your primary care doctor and need to see a health care provider quickly, visit a walk-in Minute Clinic, which is capable of performing physicals, administering vaccines, and accommodating sick visits for sore throats, earaches, coughs, UTIs, etc.  It is best to go as close to opening hours as possible.  You will need to provide your own transportation, but here are some locations in close proximity to campus:

If you have any minor injuries or illnesses, or you think you need x-rays, IV fluids, or stitches, it is usually more economical and time-saving to visit an Urgent Care rather than an ER.  You will need to provide your own transportation, but here are some locations in close proximity to campus:

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.
