Urgent Concerns

In the case of a life threatening emergency, dial 911 from any phone, then call Campus Safety at 414.443.8500. Health Services should also be contacted at 414.443.8630. Many people in both of these departments are trained first responders.

Urgent care, but non-emergency concerns, should be directed first to Health Services during office hours. Many times the nurse or doctor can diagnose and/or prescribe methods or medications. If not, they will refer students to the appropriate next level of care.

Outside of Health Services office hours, students should contact the Resident Life Assistant on their floor, the Resident Counselor in their building, or Judy Eggers, Director of Residence Life, for assistance in getting the care they need.

Coverage

Wisconsin Lutheran College is committed to promoting good health to ensure our students' academic success. We have a health care practitioner on campus every weekday, and a professional counselor also is available. Many services can be accessed at the Student Health Center, from simple over-the-counter medications, to injury and illness assessments, physicals, travel screenings, lab work, TB tests, and most vaccinations. When you access care on campus, your services at WLC are covered 100% and you pay nothing.

While the Student Health Center is a great resource and can handle many health concerns, having access to more care is essential. Emergencies arise, and health concerns can escalate and require more urgent care. We encourage you to carefully look over your personal health insurance policy, be sure you are eligible for benefits, and ensure that there are providers near WLC that accept your insurance coverage. It is also helpful to understand your deductible levels and preauthorization requirements. Be sure that the student is aware of where and how to best use their insurance coverage and that they have an insurance card with them at all times and have provided a copy to the Student Health Center.

Faculty and Staff Services

Health Services is happy to assist faculty and staff with day-to-day concerns. Please stop and see us if you have mild health concerns. We are also able to offer more extensive services, lab work and vaccinations and pass that on to you at our cost. Individuals will want to consider coming to Health Services for work related travel screenings and vaccinations. We are not able to bill third party insurance at this time.
