The Thomas B. Rudd Health Center is dedicated to maintaining the health and safety of the students of Hamilton College. We promote a healthly lifestyle by educating and providing preventative medical care, diagnosis and treatment of illness and injury, with consultation and/or referral to other health care professionals when appropriate.
In the event of a medical emergency, please call campus safety at 315-859-4000 for HCEMS (Hamilton College Emergency Medical Services).
During clinic hours, medical and nursing care is provided. Students are seen by appointment with allowances made for emergencies. There is no fee for evaluation by the staff. However, students will incur charges for medications and in-house labs. Students are responsible for charges incurred by referrals to specialists, hospital emergency rooms and outside labs.
Bills for health center charges are sent weekly to the Business Office and are applied to the tuition account at a later date. The date the bill is applied to the tuition account is not the same date the student was seen at the health center. The students are provided with the original copy of the bill. If a copy is needed, a medical release must be signed by the student to send a copy of the bill home.
To schedule, reschedule, or cancel an appointment, please call 315-859-4111.
Students who do not cancel a scheduled appointment before the time of the appointment will incur a $10.00 fee for a "No Show" appointment! To avoid the charge, please call and cancel your appointment.
