General Information



To make an appointment at the Hammond Health Center phone us at (607) 274-3177 between the hours of 8am and 8pm Monday thru Friday or between the hours of 10am and 6pm on Saturday. The Health Center is closed on Sundays.

  • We have the capabilities for many different types of appointments such as vaccinations, annual well care, physical exams, general illnesses, as well as same day urgent care appointments. Our staff includes specialists in internal medicine, adolescent medicine and sports medicine. Contact us and we will be happy to assist you.

  • We encourage appointments, but will always accommodate students needing urgent care. Scheduling an appointment allows you to choose the particular physician or physician assistant you would like to see, almost always reduces your waiting time, and helps us to see patients more efficiently.

  • Plan to check in at the main desk 10 minutes before the scheduled time. If you cannot keep an appointment or no longer need the appointment, please notify us as soon as possible so we may schedule another patient for that time.

  • We can administer ongoing immunotherapy (allergy shots) under the guidance of your personal allergy specialist. You can have your home allergist mail us your serum and orders and then you can schedule an appointment to have it administered at the Health Center.

  • For students with chronic conditions, we strongly encourage early contact with us in order to establish care with the most appropriate clinician. We welcome the opportunity to provide ongoing care in collaboration with your physicians at home. We also work closely with the counseling center psychotherapists, community mental health professionals, and psychiatrists at home to provide careful, coordinated care for students needing medication in the course of their therapy. All treatment is strictly confidential.

  • We maintain a current list of dentists and oral surgeons in the Ithaca area who have expressed particular interest in our referrals and who will see Ithaca College students promptly for dental emergencies. These dental practices bill independently for visits.
