Emergencies & Urgent Care


Care for urgent illness or injury
during normal business hours:
CALL FIRST (352) 392-1161

  • The SHCC’s Acute (Urgent) Care area sees acute illness/injury concerns during normal business hours. If possible, CALL FIRST, as by knowing the issue ahead of time the SHCC can prepare for your arrival and get you taken care of as quickly as possible. Urgent problems may also be seen in the primary care medical teams on a walk-in basis after consultation with a nurse. Should the situation arise where the SHCC cannot treat a patient, transport will be arranged based on the current situation (ambulance, etc.).

After-hours urgent medical concerns:
(352) 392-1161

  • Phone consultation services are available from the SHCC for students experiencing an urgent, non-emergency medical concern after-hours. The on-call medical provider can help you determine if you should seek medical treatment from a community facility right away, or if you can wait till regular business hours to be seen at the SHCC.

After-hours urgent mental health concerns:
(352) 392-1575 (CWC)

The Medical Amnesty Policy (MAP) helps students feel confident they can make the right decision if there is an alcohol or other drug-related emergency without fear of getting in trouble with the University.
