Lake Land College Health Services is available to all students and staff free of charge. The college nurse is available to discuss and answer any questions in regards to physical disorders or health-related circumstances and to provide emergency first aid treatment as well as various medical services. However, it is recommended that students subscribe to the Student Health Insurance program or have a private policy that provides comprehensive medical and surgical benefits.
*Cost of an ambulance, hospitalization, doctor’s appointments, prescription medication, X-ray’s and laboratory fees are covered by the student and are not the responsibility of the College.
In case of prolonged absences because of illness, accident or family emergencies of three days or more, students must contact Health Services so that proper notification can be made to instructors. Health Services does not get assignments from instructors for students, so it is advisable to have the phone number to someone in your class for this information, or call or email the instructor directly.
Anyone injured while on campus or attending a college-sponsored activity is required to notify Health Services and complete an Accident Report. If the incident occurs after hours, the Lake Land College Police Department should be notified.
In the event that Health Services is closed and you have an emergency or need assistance, call 911, the Lake Land College Police Department at 217-234-5432 or your personal physician.
