Clark House, a 14-bed medical center located in the heart of the School grounds, functions much like a family practice. Dr. John Bassi, a board certified family practitioner, a staff of caring nurses, two counselors, a female health practitioner, and two athletic trainers provide care for the School.
Concord Regional Hospital and a multi-specialty orthopedic group are less than a mile away.
Clark House provides a relaxed, quiet atmosphere in which students may recover from illness or injury as well as develop a necessary and healthy balance in their lives. In some cases a student's health needs may exceed the limits of what Clark House can provide. In those situations, a student may be placed on a Health Leave.
