Over-the-Counter Medication Dispensary and Prescription Delivery

Over-the-Counter Medication Dispensary: 
Our dispensary is available for over-the-counter medication purchase. Please contact Student Health Services prior to coming over so that we can best accommodate your needs. OTC medications cannot be charged to your student account. Medications may be purchased by cash or credit card

Prescription Medication Delivery:
We have an affiliation with Cayuga Medical Center Pharmacy to have prescription medications delivered to the Hammond Health Center for students on a regular basis. Students will be required to complete the Pharmacy and Medication Authorization Form . Please be advised that initial enrollment and delivery may have a longer turn around time. Medications may be picked up anytime during clinic hours. Please bring your student ID when picking up your medications. 

We ask that students who are no longer on campus reach out to their home providers for prescription refills, etc.  If this is not possible, students who have been prescribed medication at the Hammond Health Center may contact us via their Medent Patient Portal or by phone 607-274-3177 to communicate with their provider.

The Health Center does not accept direct delivery of medications from home, mail-order or specialty pharmacies. Students can have their medications directly delivered to them and may drop off the medication at the Health Center if applicable.
