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.
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.
Emergency services are available to students through Fairview Hospital at 29 Lewis Ave., Great Barrington. It's approximately a 5 minute drive from the campus. To contact emergency services, call 0 or extension 7291. If there is no answer, call 911, then notify Campus Safety at extension 7291 or an RD.
Emergency responders from off campus need to be met and led to the person or area of the emergency.
It is a policy of Bard College at Simon's Rock that parents/guardians will be notified of any Emergency Room admission or hospitalization with the exception of sexual assault of a student over the age of 18.
Nurses are on call, with physician backup, nights and weekends during the school year for urgent medical care needs. The nurse on call can be contacted through Campus Safety at ext. 7291 or the Residence Director on call.
