Infirmary & Health Care Information


General Information
The campus Marshall Infirmary has a capacity of 38 beds and the capability of treating cadets for minor illnesses and injuries. A nurse is on duty 24 hours a day and is available during the school day and for sick call. Morning sick call begins at 7:00 a.m. Monday through Friday.

Routine medical and dental care should be arranged by you during school breaks with your local provider. Minor illnesses are treated or referrals are made to Roswell physicians if deemed necessary by the medical staff. There is no charge for an office call or for confinement at the Infirmary, however, you will be billed for any lab tests, or drugs prescribed.

The Marshall Infirmary cannot provide for hospitalization and/or other needs such as dental care and sub-specialty care. Cadets are encouraged to purchase supplemental health insurance for these uncommon, but costly medical needs. Health and accident insurance plans are not offered through NMMI.

In instances of sudden serious illness or accident, cadets are transported to a local area hospital by ambulance.

Medication
Prescribed medications, regardless of origin, must be turned over to the NMMI Infirmary. Infirmary staff will be available at matriculation to collect medications. All medications must be controlled and stored at the Infirmary. Misuse, abuse or unauthorized possession of prescription or over-the-counter drugs may result in immediate suspension.

Roswell Health Care Providers
In the past, NMMI received numerous complaints from the Roswell medical community because physicians' and dentists' bills were not being paid. Some local providers require a substantial deposit from parents before NMMI cadets are examined. In non-emergency cases, you will be notified to mail or wire funds for this purpose.

Please respond promptly when invoiced by Roswell health care providers, as we do not want to jeopardize health care for our cadets.
