FAULKNER HEALTH CENTER
Faulkner Health Center is located at 348 Centre Street, on Milton’s east campus. Physicians from Children’s Hospital Boston provide medical services and treatment through a combination of on campus and telehealth services. In addition, physicians are available to consult with our nursing staff during evenings and weekends.
Faulkner Health Center is staffed with registered nurses 24/7. Nursing staff are trained to treat or triage all levels of our students’ health needs with care and respect for the diverse backgrounds and cultures of our student population. Nursing staff also work collaboratively with counselors, athletic trainers, dorm parents, and advisors to provide a whole health approach to the care our students receive at Faulkner.
Recent renovations to Faulkner provide additional rooms with private bathrooms for students to rest when they are not feeling well. Faulkner has designated spaces for students who have been diagnosed with or are suspected of having COVID-19, or other contagious infections such as flu, which will allow for isolation and quarantine as needed, including a separate entrance and assessment area to ensure the health and safety of all members of the Milton Academy community.
