College Health Center


Emory & Henry maintains an outpatient health center and provides outpatient medical treatment for minor illness and injury. 

Student fees cover office visit costs for medical services. No insurance is filed, no copays are required. Supply charges, normally under $10, such as over-the-counter medications and non-returnable therapeutic equipment are placed on the student’s account in the Business Office. If you provide allergy serum, shots are administered for the cost of the disposable syringe. For laboratory tests and prescription medications, insurance is filed by the outside provider or pharmacy.

All health records are confidential and not connected to academic records in any way. The College complies with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. For more information, view the HIPAA Policy.  
Students are responsible for providing their own transportation in non-emergency situations. Students too ill to attend class should arrange medical attention during regular Health Center hours. Appointments are preferred, walk-ins will be seen as time allows. Students are responsible for communicating with professors regarding academic work missed due to illness. Campus medical services are not intended to meet the needs of serious illness or accident. Treatment for such is the responsibility of each student, faculty/staff, and their family. 

Resident students requiring medical attention at hours other than the scheduled health center hours should contact the Area Coordinator or Resident Advisor on duty to arrange for care. During hours when the Health Center is closed an Urgent Care center is available to students:
