Health & Wellness

Health Center

The Rutherford Health and Wellness Center strives to provide the most exceptional health care possible to our students. The Health Center is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Students may be seen at the Health Center by scheduled appointment or on a walk-in basis. A registered nurse is on duty 24 hours a day while school is in session. The school nurse practitioner is available to see patients Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 11:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. On Wednesdays, the school doctor is available to see patients in the afternoon. If the nurses feel it is necessary, a medical provider is available after hours for consultation. You may contact the Health Center at 717-328-6136.

The Health Center is located on McFarland Road, adjacent to the Hale Field House and Nolde Athletic Center.

The Rutherford Health and Wellness Center includes the Rahauser Counseling Center, which features an experienced counseling staff committed to supporting the emotional health and well-being of our students. The Health Center medical team includes athletic trainers who work closely with the Health Center to care for sports-related injuries.

Additional Health Care
If a student requires services other than those provided by the school, the Health Center will assist in arranging appointments with outside providers as necessary. Additional services are available through the nearby Greencastle Family Practice in Greencastle, Pa. Whenever additional diagnostic or treatment procedures are needed, nearby Chambersburg Hospital in Chambersburg, Pa., offers a staff of consultants trained in most health specialties.
