Palm Beach Atlantic University

If you have a medical emergency while on campus, contact Campus Safety & Security at (561) 803-2500 for assistance. For life threatening emergencies, always dial 911 first and then call Campus Safety and Security!

The Health and Wellness Center is equipped to provide first aid and stabilization for injuries or illness; however, it is not capable of treating life-threatening or serious conditions and cannot transport students to and/or from the hospital or other medical facilities. In the event of a medical emergency, our staff will assist in referring students to area medical services.

For after-hours medical needs, the Residence Life staff and Safety and Security both have access to on-call medical consultation to assist in determining if a medical condition or injury requires immediate treatment. There are several urgent care centers located near the PBA campus, and a full service Emergency Room only one mile away. 
If an illness or injury requires you to be seen by a healthcare provider after hours or when we are closed, here is a list of local urgent care centers and hospitals.  Except in cases of emergency, it's a good idea to check with your insurance plan for information about preferred providers, co-pays and fees associated with urgent care and ER visits.
Please note that PBA is not affiliated with any of these medical facilities.  This information is furnished to you as a courtesy to assist you in finding alternative healthcare services when we are not available.
