The Elliot Menkowitz, M.D.  Wellness Center

The Wellness Center is a 12-bed facility that includes a treatment room and three exam rooms. Our health care team consists of a school physician, two nurse practitioners, registered nurses, medical assistant, school counselors and medical secretaries. Students are not permitted to visit the Wellness Center for non-emergency purposes during an academic class or obligation. A registered nurse is available on-call to address students’ health needs when the office is closed. Additionally, our medical providers are available to the Wellness Center nurses and students 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We have access to an extensive larger medical community with all medical specialties represented, as well as the use of the nearby Pottstown Memorial Medical Center (PMMC), should the need arise. A comprehensive description of our health policies, procedures and medical services is found in the Student Handbook.
