The Student Health Office is a safe, confidential place where students can receive limited primary care services including evaluation and treatment for common minor injuries and illnesses, preventive care, health education and referrals to local specialists or hospitals as needed. 

The office is staffed by a Family Nurse Practitioner and Registered Nurses. 

There are no fees for the services in the Student Health Office. Students are encouraged to contact the office to schedule an appointment. Walk-ins are accepted as space allows. 

Emergencies always take priority.

The Mercy College Health Office is advising that travelers be aware of the recent Zika virus outbreak in Caribbean and Latin American countries, as well as Mexico.  Zika virus is a mosquito-borne illness that can be spread from mosquito to human, as well as from a pregnant woman to her unborn child.  

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have advised that travel to certain Caribbean and Latin American countries should be taken with caution. The CDC cautions that women who are or may be pregnant refrain from travel to these areas if possible.
