If you are in the area and need health care during fall break:

Emergency Care

For emergency care you should go to the nearest emergency room.  If you are on campus, call Campus Safety (610-526-7911) for transportation to the Bryn Mawr Hospital Emergency Room.

Illness

If you need to see a physician for non-emergent care, you can arrange to be seen on a fee-for-service basis or through your own insurance by Dr. Claudia Hargrove (610-525-2990).  Please note that Dr. Hargrove will not be able to renew prescriptions or give medical advice over the phone.  You must make an appointment.

There is also an immediate care clinic available nights and weekends to see patients on a walk-in basis at the Main Line Health NOW Clinic in the Lawrence Park Shopping Center in Broomall. More information is available at: http://www.mainlinehealth.org/now.

Counseling

If you feel you need to see a counselor during break, you can make an appointment to be seen on a fee-for-service basis.    

  • Shobhi Kanal: 484- 716-8625
  • Eileen Bazelon: 215-477-3330

In the event of a counseling crisis, you should contact Campus Safety immediately at 610-526-7911 or proceed immediately to the nearest hospital emergency room for care.

Remember that in a true emergency situation, you should seek treatment at the hospital emergency room.  Finances can be worked out later, if necessary.
