University Partnership with Penn Adolescent & Young Adult Medicine 

Cabrini University is pleased to partner with Penn Adolescent & Young Adult Medicine (PAYAM) in Radnor to provide health care services for our students. As a result of the partnership, effective in August 2020, Cabrini students now have access to a wider range of services and specialty care, extended office hours for in-person appointments and the option to use telemedicine. PAYAM is located in Penn Medicine’s brand new, state-of-the-art facility, located just over a mile from campus. 

For more on Cabrini's partnership with PAYAM, please visit our PAYAM FAQs, available at cabrini.edu/PAYAM.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic during this transition, the University will have a medical professional available on campus in Health Services through Fall 2021 to provide on-going education, conduct campus outreach, monitor adherence to mitigation measures, assist students with accessing PAYAM services and address any health-related questions they might have. 

Important Information Regarding COVID-19

The University is committed to providing our students with a safe and appropriate delivery of a Cabrini experience. In order to do so, however, we need our students to comply with COVID-19 mitigation procedures and be conscientious about routinely monitoring their health by taking their temperature each day and being alert to symptoms related to the virus. 

All students should plan to take their own temperature every morning before leaving their home or residence hall. Resident students should plan to bring their own thermometer to campus with them, and to wash it thoroughly with soap and water after each use. While hand sanitizing stations will be available throughout campus, all students should also plan to bring a supply of hand sanitizer with them that they can keep in their rooms and/or bookbags and use as necessary throughout the day when unable to wash their hands after touching surfaces frequently touched by others.   

If your temperature registers 100.4 degrees or higher, you should stay home or in your residence hall room, and contact Cabrini Health Services at healthservices@cabrini.edu or 610.902.8400. Health Services will help determine if you should arrange for a telehealth appointment with a physician at PAYAM or with your personal physician. The physician will decide if you should be tested for COVID-19, which can be done at PAYAM’s health complex. If needed, Health Services can assist students in arranging transportation to PAYAM for testing.

You should follow-up with Cabrini Health Services in the event that testing is required, so they can advise you about actions you must take until your test results are available, and what is required should you test positive. Symptoms of COVID-19, as identified by the CDC, include, but are not limited to the following.  Please note that not every patient experiences all of the symptoms: cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever greater than or equal to 100.4, chills, fatigue, repeated shaking with chills, runny nose or new sinus congestion, muscle pain or body aches, headache, sore throat, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, new loss of taste or smell.
