Health Services

Health Services is part of the Wellness Center at Simon's Rock, which also includes Counseling Services, reflecting our integrated approach to student care. Our mission is to enhance the academic environment of the college by making quality medical services available to students.

Nurse Jodi Tuller with student

Our staff of experienced nurses, doctors, and a nurse practitioner is available to help students maintain optimum health while attending Simon's Rock. We offer support and education to students, allowing them to transition from living at home to living apart from family and helping them access healthcare.

  • Hours: Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. when school is in session.
  • Walk-ins are welcome during office hours. An appointment is not needed.
  • A nurse is on call after hours and weekends when school is in session and is available by contacting the on-duty Residence Director or Campus Safety at ext. 7291.

Physicians are available for appointments one afternoon a week. Referrals to the doctor's office can be arranged through Student Health Services. No problem or health concern is too small, we encourage all students to stop by and learn what we have to offer. If necessary, transportation to off-campus appointments will be arranged through the local taxi company and the charge will be billed home.
