  • Emory & Henry College Health Center
  • Health Center

    Emory & Henry maintains an outpatient health center and provides outpatient medical treatment for minor illness and injury. Student fees provide for medical services with the following exceptions: laboratory needs, medicines prescribed to be filled by an off-campus pharmacist, allergy shots (if the student provides the serum, allergy shots will be administered for the cost of the disposable syringe), non-returnable therapeutic equipment, and nonprescription (over-the-counter) drugs. There is no charge for an office visit at the Student Health Center.

    The Student Health Center is open 8am-noon and 2pm-4pm, Monday-Friday. During hours of operation, the health center is staffed by a registered nurse. From 8:15-10:15am on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday a nurse practitioner is present at the health center. All health records are confidential and not connected to academic records in any way.

    Campus medical services are not intended to meet the needs of serious illness or accident. Treatment for such is the responsibility of each student, faculty/staff, and his/her family. Students will be responsible for providing their own transportation in non-emergency situations.

    Students too ill to attend class should arrange medical attention during regular health center hours by making an appointment. The student is responsible for academic work missed due to illness.

    Resident students requiring emergency medical attention at hours other than the scheduled health center hours should contact the area coordinator on duty or resident advisor on duty to arrange for emergency room care. When serious injuries occur on campus which may require emergency treatment or hospitalization, the student should contact the area coordinator and/or the resident advisor who have been instructed in procedures to summon assistance.

    The Director is available after hours in case of emergency. The emergency room at Johnston Memorial Hospital in Abingdon is available 24 hours daily, 7 days a week. For emergency transportation, call 911 for a rescue squad and be specific about your location.

    To assist the college in providing appropriate care, all students are required to present a completed health form as provided by the college admissions office at the time of admission. The college physician serves as the manager of cases of students or employees who have AIDS or who test positive for AIDS.

    All students are required to have insurance policies with personal injury, accident and health coverage. If students do not have this coverage through family policies, they may purchase it at the time of pre-billing for other college expenses. The cost of the insurance is automatically added to the student's account unless he/she returns an insurance waiver card enclosed with pre-billing.
