In addition, we work closely with our colleagues in the Counseling Center on the second floor in an effort to treat the whole student. The health center is committed to providing high quality, compassionate care to students.
The health center is staffed with one full-time physician’s assistant and one full-time nurse practitioner. Triage nurse services are available during clinic hours and students are encouraged to call the triage line with medical questions or concerns. Same day appointments with the nurse or provider are available. Students are seen by appointment with allowances made for emergencies. There is no fee for evaluation by the staff. The health center maintains an in-house lab and a dispensary of common medications. For additional testing or services, students are referred to local specialists and/or imaging/testing centers.
Please pick up any prescription you are expecting from the health center by 4 pm Monday-Friday. Students will be notified after one week if prescriptions have not been picked up. After two weeks, unclaimed medications will be disposed of. Due to regulatory requirements, no controlled substances can be delivered to, stored or dispensed by the health center. Please review the prescription policy.
Privacy & Records
Student’s privacy is of the utmost concern to us when a student receives services at the health center. Records created and maintained by this department are considered student treatment records and the student’s privacy of such information is governed by federal and state laws. Unless specifically authorized by law or required by court order, private medical or counseling information and student treatment records will not be shared or released without the consent of the student.
