Health Services

Health Services ready to help

There is no need to worry when you get that dreaded phone call from a sick child. LaGrange College has a campus clinic designed to provide comprehensive primary medical care – a first stop for minor injuries and illness.

Operated by WeCare TLC, Health Services is located at the corner of Forrest Avenue and Dallis Street (directly across from the college’s soccer complex).  The clinic provides urgent care office visits with a physician or nurse practitioner, urgent care prescriptions (antibiotics), and in-house lab work – all at no cost to the student. 

Services do not include visits for chronic medical conditions or prescriptions for birth control pills or other medications.

Because the staff is dedicated to serving a small population, doctor visits usually take up less time. And the clinic staff generally spends about 20 minutes with each patient, on average, compared to the seven minutes usually provided in other settings.

Please note that while the campus clinic offers a no-cost and convenient health benefit to students, these services do not replace the need to carry a health insurance policy through a parent.

The clinic is open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.  (The clinic will be closed on Thursdays and weekends.) Students may drop in or call for an appointment at (800) 941-0644 option 2.

Counseling Center

We know there is more to a healthy student than physical well-being. Sometimes the stresses of being away from home, keeping up with academics and dealing with new relationships can be a little hard to handle.

The LaGrange College Counseling Center’s mission is to maintain a welcoming and confidential atmosphere while providing academic coaching, personal growth development and short-term counseling. The center assists in attaining accommodations for students with physical, mental and learning disabilities, and helps students successfully create both short- and long-term goals toward their academic, personal and career objectives.  A licensed counselor directs the counseling and coordinates all other services.

An important part of our philosophy is that each student has the resources available to receive advice, assistance and counseling throughout his/her college experience.
