Health services for students at Dunn School are provided by the Health Care Services Office, located in the center of campus.

The school has highly qualified medical personnel on staff to coordinate all Health Care Services. This important service is supported and advised by local medical professionals, including a consulting physician. Medical emergencies are managed by the Santa Ynez Cottage Hospital, the nearest emergency facility in Solvang, just minutes from campus.

The office also manages all student perscriptions, ensuring that students take daily medications when they are supposed to. The office keeps all medications securely locked in the office and are distributed daily and nightly by health professionals on staff.

The office also arranges for mental health services on-campus, can make arrangements for off-campus appointments with doctors, and even schedules chiropractors and acupuncturists to come to campus for appointments with students. 

The Health Services office is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., but a member of the Health Services team is on-call 24 hours per day. Also, members of the health services staff live right on campus, so they are always just a phone call away.

To reach the Health Services office, please call: (805) 686-0626 or (805) 686-0613. After hours, call (805) 325-1061.
