~In an effort to reduce student wait times and to improve scheduling for all patients needing same day care, Hammond Health Center now requires ALL visits to be by appointment only. WE WILL NO LONGER SEE PATIENTS ON A WALK-IN BASIS. Instead, we will be offering same day appointments for students who are acutely ill. Please call ahead to schedule all appointments at 607-274-3177.

Same Day appointments are available for students who are acutely ill, and will not be utilized for preventive, routine, or well care OR for prescription refills or medications re-checks. If you feel you need same day care, please call ahead to schedule a same day appointment at 607-274-3177. Please note that same day appointments are available Monday -Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. and will be filled on a first call basis.

All other non-urgent, appointments may be scheduled by calling 607-274-3177. Preventive and well care visits such as physical exams, travel clinic visits, allergy injections, and immunizations may also be scheduled through the MyICHealthCenter web portal.

  • 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.

  • 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.
