Medical Services Overview
Throughout your time at HKNC, you will have access to a team of experienced medical professionals who will help you to manage your health through routine, preventive and emergency care as well as health education and wellness programs.
The services of a nurse practitioner, low vision optometrist, otolaryngologist and mental health social worker are available on campus at regularly scheduled intervals. Our medical team will coordinate emergency services, hospital visits and appointments with private doctors in the local community, if necessary.
Staff nurses are on campus 8-12 hours a day, 7 days a week, to provide medical advice, first aid and symptomatic care, assistance with medications and treatments, and nutritional counseling.
Please note that we work with your at-home doctors; we do not replace them. Our team will collaborate with your at-home physicians to ensure that you receive the medical care you need. This may include coordinating diagnostic testing and obtaining medications for you.
You also may find it helpful to take a health class during your time at HKNC. Taught by the nurse practitioner, these classes provide information and skill training in areas related to health and first aid, including medication administration, nutrition, disease management and diabetes, and can be customized to meet your specific needs.
