Info for Parents
The Student Health Center is here to provide health care and guidance to meet our students’ and patients’ needs. We offer comprehensive services including acute and chronic care, women’s health, immunizations, mental health evaluation and treatment, and treatment of minor emergencies. We also have on-site lab and x-ray services and a full service pharmacy. We are fortunate to be affiliated with the world renowned UAB Health System and we provide referral services to the specialists who are part of that system. SHS also refers to specialty groups outside of the UAB System as needed and appropriate. If your son or daughter requires hospitalization, the SHS utilizes the UAB Hospitalist Service or the many specialty services available to us. SHS also provides after hours physician on call coverage, 24 hours a day/7 days a week/365 days a year.
We at Student Health Services are aware of our privilege to be involved in our students’ lives. We are committed to being student advocates and to promoting the overall health and wellness of our students. It is of paramount importance that we at SHS create a trusting relationship with our patients and strict confidentiality between the health-care provider and patient is essential. We are aware of parents’ concern and will be glad to speak with you with appropriate explicit written consent from the student.
The staff of Student Health Services is dedicated to treating our students with respect and providing care in a friendly and caring manner. If your student requires care at SHS, we strive to be your student’s “home away from home” during times of need. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at 205-934-3580.
