General Information

Confidentiality of Medical Records


  • Medical records at the Hammond Health Center are completely confidential. The information in any record is released only with students' written consent, unless there is a life threatening emergency, or the student is incapable of giving consent in a medically urgent situation. We encourage all students with significant illnesses to communicate openly with their familites, and we will do all we can to facilitate that process. Health center staff will gladly speak with parents or relatives once there is a release of information form on file at the Health Center signed by the student.
  • We do not issue excuses for class absences. No medical information of any kind can be released to Ithaca College faculty or staff without students' written consent.
  • If you have questions, please contact Terri Hradisky at (607) 274-1183 with questions or email her at
