The Health Center is located on the corner of Hinsdale and Peckham Streets 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 concerns can be addressed by the on-call registered nurses. Resident assistants, resident directors, Welcome Center staff 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 extension 5414.
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.
Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. (closed for lunch 12:30-1:30 p.m.)
