The Health Office is located on the first floor of the Main Hall, Room 127. Office hours are posted each semester. Registered nurses provide a variety of over-the-counter products for students. Additionally, general information on preventive health care and wellness, and referrals to local health care providers is available.
All residents are required to carry health insurance valid in the U.S. Mercy College does not provide any insurance options for the 2015-2016 academic year. In the event that a resident is diagnosed as having an infectious disease that poses a threat or disruption to those in the Residence Hall, the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs, in consultation with the Health Office, may require the resident to leave the Residence Hall until such time it is deemed acceptable for them to return.
If students come into contact with or become aware of another student’s or employee’s contact with an infectious disease that can be spread through casual contact, they should immediately report it to the Health Office (914-674-7255). If the Health Office is unavailable, they should report it to the Emergency Security & Safety (914-674-9999) or Assistant Dean of Student Affairs (914-674-7622) or Director of Safety (914-674-7661).
An Emergency Contact Card is kept on file in the Residential Life Office and must be kept up to date. All residents are required to complete a new card each semester and notify the staff of any changes that occur during the semester.
