Emergencies and After-Hours Care

Our health center is open Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5pm. We realize that situations arise outside of our normal business hours. Please refer to the information below or our After- Hours Care Handout (DOC) for how to handle medical concerns outside business hours. 

What to do in an emergency?

If you encounter a life-threatening emergency,

  • immediately call 911 and then Campus Police at (410) 617-5911 to request immediate assistance.  Explain your exact location and clearly describe what is wrong.
    Calling Campus Police is important as they will dispatch a first responder to your location to evaluate and assist your acute emergency until the ambulance arrives.
  • If your health issue is an emergency, calling campus police will also direct emergency personnel/ambulance onto Loyola’s campus. If the health issue is not an emergency, Campus Police can assist and transport you to the most appropriate medical facility (i.e. Urgent Care, Emergency Room, etc

What to do for non-emergent concerns?

If you have a non-life-threatening medical concern or question after-hours that cannot wait until SHC reopens,

  • call our On-Call Service* at (410) 583-9396 and the on-call physician through our Sinai Hospital partnership will be able to assist you.

*Please note that the on-call providers do not have access to SHS health records or ability to help schedule appointments. For concerns related to this, you will need to call back during normal business hours.
