Roosevelt students have utilized services from the following providers near the Chicago and Schaumburg Campuses. That this information is provided as a convenience and cannot be considered an endorsement of service:

Alexian Brothers Medical Center

800 Biesterfield Rd.
Elk Grove Village, IL 60007–3397

Students living at the residence halls at the Chicago Campus should follow these steps:

  1. Online Resources: Many health insurance plans provide “nurse on-call” or web-based medical services. Students and parents are encouraged to become familiar with resources provided by their insurance carrier that can provide assistance during an illness.
  2. Communication: Report any serious illness or accidents to a Resident Assistant (RA) or professional staff member in the building.
  3. Transportation: If you need to go a hospital and you are not so ill as to warrant an ambulance or you do not have a friend to drive you, the RA on duty will call a cab for you. For insurance reasons, residence hall staff is not permitted to drive students to the hospital, but may accompany you in a cab or ambulance upon your request.
  4. Follow up with your RA as soon as you are feeling better.

Students who have a medical or psychological condition that may require assistance while living on campus should notify their RA and/or the Counseling Center (for psychological conditions only). While confidentiality remains tantamount, it is important that the residence hall staff is aware of personal needs and ways they can assist if a concern or crisis arises.
