Hammond Health Center
The J. David Hammond Center for Student Health Services, located at the center of the campus adjacent to the Campus Center, is a primary health care center for Ithaca College students. The center provides care by appointment and on an urgent care basis for most illnesses and injuries. The Hammond Health Center works closely with Cayuga Medical Center and with local and regional specialists in virtually every discipline to provide referrals whenever off-campus care is necessary.
In addition to ambulatory care, the Center offers laboratory testing through its licensed and accredited laboratory, on-site X-rays, and selected prescription medications. Health center clinicians work with psychologists and social workers in Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), housed in the same building, to care for students in crisis and those requiring medication to supplement their counseling.
A variety of over-the-counter medications and supplies are available in the Center's Medication Room. For a current list of what's available for purchase, please refer to the document at right.
The Hammond Health Center staff consists of four board-certified physicians and two licensed physician assistants, registered nurses, nurse aides, laboratory, and X-ray technologists, and administrative, clerical, and insurance specialists.
