Emergency/Urgent Care Resources

The UHCS is not equipped to handle life threatening Medical emergencies.

In case of an emergency call 911 and arrange for immediate and rapid transport to an emergency facility, such as a hospital, where sophisticated equipment and resources are available. UHCS is NOT an emergency or urgent care facility.

Mental Health Emergency

Counseling maintains walk-in crises appointments each day during business hours. We consider an urgent issue to be for people who are having thoughts of harm to self or others, have suffered trauma or assault, or other situations where they are cancelling school or work. If you believe someone is in immediate danger, call 911.
