Georgia Southern University Health Services mission is to meet or exceed the student patients full range of needs and expectations that relate to the delivery of health care services – medical, counseling, educational, and wellness – while providing them with cost-effective, high quality care in an efficient manner with a focus on educating students on how to be knowledgeable healthcare consumers.

Students who become sick or injured when the Health Center is closed, may seek medical treatment at the East Georgia Regional Medical Center Emergency Room (directions) or other local after-hours clinics, each of which are located a short distance from Georgia Southern University. All expenses related to emergency and after hours care are the responsibility of the student. Students are encouraged to carry their health insurance card at all times. If students are dealing with a medical emergency they should contact 911 (9-911 on campus). For other health problems or issues we recommend that students contact the Health Service After Hour Nurse Response Line by calling the main Health Service number: 912-478-5641.
