Staffed by a registered nurse, the Health Office provides a multitude of services including: first aid for illness and injuries, immunizations, medical emergency care, diagnostic testing, laboratory testing (limited), health counseling and education, and referrals to appropriate agencies and resources. Over-the-counter medications are available. The office operates on a walk-in basis. There is no fee for services. Medical emergencies after hours are referred to Campus Safety and Security (ext. 8070).
A physician is available for clinical appointments and consultation weekly during the fall and spring semesters on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. There is no fee for services with the exception of physicals. Appointments are necessary. For more information, contact the Health Office.
The Health Office is not an emergency room. All serious injuries and/or medical conditions beyond nursing care are referred to specialized areas, such as the emergency room. The Health Office works closely with Campus Safety and Security and the local ambulance for emergency transport.
In requesting medical assistance, the College merely acts as an agent for the injured party. All medical costs are the responsibility of the injured party.
In accordance with the Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (Buckley Amendment), medical information will not be released without written consent of the individual party.
