Health & Wellness Center
Brooks School's Health & Wellness Center equips our health professionals with a space that will allows them to serve a myriad of health services, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The Wellness Center is staffed by a registered nurse at all times. A registered nurse in charge of student medications is also on-site Monday through Friday mornings.
While we hope that our students will steer clear of being ill and needing to spend lots of time in this facility, we are [pleased by the way it serves] students in need of a wide range of care.
Head of School John PackardFrom preventative care to urgent medical attention, the Health & Wellness Center serves our entire student community offering:

Physical Therapy, On Campus
Through our Health & Wellness Center team, Brooks offers physical therapy services to students on-campus twice a week. Tuesday and Thursday evenings, Bill Gordon, PT, of Gordon PT, will see students right in the Athletic Center.
Where do students sleep?
Brooks' Health & Wellness Center offers eight beds (four private, single rooms; two double rooms) for students with a fever or who are feeling ill.
The facility, adjacent to the academic building, also offers a large common area with a television and board games.
It’s a cozy, relaxing lounge area allowing students to get out of their beds even if they're not well enough to go back to school. In the Health & Wellness center, they can be up and about a bit and feel more at home.
What else is inside?
The Health & Wellness Center offers a fully functioning lab with which our staff does blood tests, strep tests and such on-site.
The school counselors
Director of Psychological Counseling Services Kimberly Cratty's office is housed in the center. Students who want to talk with someone, or parents inquiring about their child's emotional health, may contact her directly via email or at (978) 725-6228.
Counselor Joe Erickson is also available at the center for appointments multiple days a week.
