Health Services

Students have access to multiple healthcare providers and facilities, some within short walking distance from the campus. The SHS has made arrangements with our local family medicine groups who have agreed to accept our students as new patients and meet our students’ non-emergent health care needs during their time here in Marion but cannot guarantee that the student’s particular insurance will be accepted.

Timelycare Telehealth offers students same-day availability for virtual visits with healthcare professionals; scheduled counseling sessions for students that fit their busy schedules; advanced psychiatric care including non-controlled substances; and health coaching. timelycare services are included in student fees and visits are not billed to personal insurance.
