Employee Health Services is committed to serving our faculty and staff and will continue to operate with normal business hours. We are taking extra precautions based on recommendations from the CDC and Mississippi State Department of Health regarding COVID-19 and have made the following changes to our appointments.
In an effort to maximize efficiency and the number of patients we can serve, Employee Health Services will operate on an appointment-only basis for urgent care/sick visits. We will not be accepting walk-in patients. It is very important that employees call ahead to schedule an appointment in order to protect other patients and clinic staff as recommended by the Mississippi State Department of Health. If you need to be seen or have a question, please call ahead.
