Medical Transportation Policy

Members of the Robert Morris University community with a medical emergency should contact the University Police at 412- 397-2424 for assistance.  Students advised by Student Health Services to seek emergency medical treatment will be transported by ambulance.

For medical situations of an urgent nature, appropriate University personnel may seek to coordinate transportation for a student by a University employee in a University-owned vehicle if available.

Transportation will not be provided by the university or its employees for routine medical appointments with the exception of trained athletic department personnel who may transport student-athletes as deemed necessary by the RMU Department of Athletics.

Residential students, or students living off-campus in this service area, are strongly encouraged to obtain an annual membership from our local ambulance provider, Valley Ambulance Authority.  Students with proof of current medical insurance coverage, can obtain an annual membership for $25.00 a year (August to August).  Valley Ambulance's website is www.valleyamb.org and they may be contacted directly by phone at 412-262-2621.

For mental health and other related matters, transportation arrangements will be determined by the RMU Counseling Center.

Students who have been transported by ambulance to the hospital may contact the University Police Department to request return transportation to campus when discharged.
