Medical Emergencies

Call 7911

Drury University Panther Clinic is not staffed or equipped to manage medical emergencies other than those requiring only simple first aid. Also, nursing staff do not make campus house calls. In a true emergency, it is important to obtain care as quickly as possible, and valuable time may be wasted by calling the Panther Clinic.

If a student or employee is in need of immediate attention, call 7911, which will be answered by Drury’s Security Office. Security will keep you on the line and call 911 for an ambulance. We ask that you do this so Security can quickly assist with directing emergency vehicles to the exact location of the person in need and provide traffic control.

Please note that campus personnel do not provide transportation. If the patient is unable to get to treatment without assistance, request that an ambulance be dispatched.
