Health Office

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.

Health Office Announcement - Zika Virus: February 10, 2016

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.

Below are links to information to assist in decision making on whether or not to travel to these areas:
