The mission of the Student Health Center is to maintain optimum physical and emotional health of the Hiram College student body through the provision of quality, accessible, comprehensive, and cost-effective primary health care.
We also strive to promote healthy behaviors and lifestyle choices through ongoing educational outreach and programming. The Student Health Center assists students in the pursuit of their academic goals and personal development consistent with the mission of the college.
The Health Center is located on the corner of Hinsdale St. and Peckham St. across from the Pendleton House. A handicap access ramp is located at the front entrance. All traditional plan students are welcome to use the Health Center.
A nurse practitioner is available Monday through Friday for appointments. The doctor comes in once a week and sees students by appointment only. After hours medical concern can be addressed by the on-call registered nurses. The RAs, RDs, Welcome Center and Campus Safety have access to contact information for the on-call nurses. When dealing with an emergency the Hiram Emergency Squad may be reached at X5414.
All Health Service encounters are treated with confidentiality. Medical files are not shared with anyone without the student's permission. The only exception to this is if we believe a student is a threat to him/herself or another person. Likewise, information from the medical record is not given to anyone--friends, professors, or even parents--without the student's express permission. Counseling Services is located in the Julia Church Health Center building; however, information and records are separate and are not a part of the student's medical file.
Hiram College and My LifePlan, a healthcare information services company, are proud to announce a partnership that will bring My LifePlan's breakthrough service to all current students, faculty and staff, as well as to all incoming freshman.
My LifePlan integrates the latest biometric technology and Web-based access to provide first repsonders and hospital emergency room staff with secure, immediate access to critical information. MyChoice speaks for individuals who may not be able to speak for themselves by providing personnel with a medical history, emergency contacts, allergies and any personal directives a patient may have, through a simple scan of a fingerprint or the use of an ID card.
