Hours and Appointments

9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (closed noon to 1 p.m. for lunch)

Alternate appointment times including evening appointments may be available by prior appointment.

Same day appointments are usually available and staff will work with your schedule as much as possible. While appointments are not required and you will never be turned away from the Wellness Center in an emergency, we request that you call for an appointment to ensure your comfort, ease and the efficiency in caring for all students requiring care. To make an appointment, call Minerva Bonadonna, ext. 6229 (708-524-6229).

In Case of Emergency:
In the event of an emergency, dial 911 on a campus phone. All 911 calls from the campus are connected directly to local emergency services through Security. Security personnel will direct emergency personnel to the correct location on campus. Using a cellphone or non-campus phone can delay the arrival of an ambulance to the proper campus location.

Off Campus Emergency:
Call 911 or Security at (708) 524-5999 and ask to reach the mental health emergency staff. 

After Hours Care:
Prevention is the best medicine, so students are encouraged to seek help at the first sign of a problem. Students are never turned away from the Wellness Center. Students requiring care when the Wellness Center is closed should contact our collaborating physician, James Baraglia, MD. Call (708) 456-6611 and ask to page the on-call physician. When the physician returns your call, identify yourself as a Dominican University student.

Other urgent care options are also available. Dominican University partners with Rush Oak Park Hospital located at Madison St. and Harlem in Oak Park. If you visit the Emergency Room, you must identify yourself as a Dominican student and register Dr. James Baraglia as your doctor.

Students may also visit the Take Care Clinic located inside Walgreens, at Lake St. and Harlem Avenue in River Forest.
