In the event of a medical emergency, call 610-758-4200 if you are on Lehigh’s campus or 911 off-campus 

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak globally and in the United States, and the recent decision of Lehigh University to move to remote instruction for the remainder of the semester, the Health & Wellness Center will remain open but will be limited in the services we provide. Our process for scheduling appointments will also be modified during this period.

Scheduling Appointments

To be seen at the Health & Wellness Center you must call 610-758-3870 to schedule an appointment. The Health & Wellness Center clinical staff will do a phone assessment of your particular health concerns and symptoms and then make recommendations for further care. This serves to mitigate risk of potential exposure and transmission of COVID-19 on our campus.  To work towards ensuring the health of our students, students will not be able to schedule online appointments but should instead call the number listed above to schedule an appointment for the remainder of the semester. Do not walk in to the Health & Wellness Center without calling first. If you are having a medical emergency call 610-758-4200 if you are on Lehigh’s campus or 911 if you are not on Lehigh’s campus. During this time period, we will be continuing the following clinical services:

  • Evaluations for illness (you must call ahead to schedule an appointment)

  • Evaluation and management for minor injuries (including, but not limited to, sprains, back or joint pain, cuts, and scrapes)

  • Sexually Transmitted Infection testing

  • Contraception management and pregnancy testing

  • Medication refills

During this time period, we will be pausing the following services:

  • Driver, occupational or study abroad physical exams 

  • Allergy injections

  • Some routine vaccinations. Please call the Health & Wellness Center regarding vaccinations you may be due for.

  • Annual “well woman” gynecological appointments. Please be sure to call the Health & Wellness Center if you need contraception refill or are having a gynecological or menstrual concern.
