Spring on the York College campus

Health Services

The York College campus is your home, and the medical professionals at the Health Services Office want to make sure you’re feeling well. Good health means you’ll have the opportunity to do better in class, get active on campus, and start feeling like yourself.

The Health Services Office at York College is committed to keeping students feeling well by providing the best care possible. Our physician and nurse practitioner are available by appointment to make sure a student can get treatment for the common cold or find local referrals for more serious illnesses. We can also coordinate with your home physician to manage chronic illnesses. Contact one of our nurses to schedule an appointment.

  • Medications and Equipment

    The Office of Health Services offers many over-the-counter medications and other pharmaceuticals. Some of these are available free of charge for illnesses such as colds. Other medications are provided for a nominal fee. Required medications not stocked by Health Services must be obtained at an outside pharmacy by the patient. We can direct students to local pharmacies. The Office of Health Services cannot fill prescriptions from outside physicians.

    Medications will not be dispensed for chronic illnesses requiring long-term use.

    Certain appliances, such as crutches and some splints are available on loan at no charge. Other appliances are available at cost.

    Students who become ill or injured on campus and desire to come to Health Services but are unable to walk or drive to the Student Union Building, may call Campus Safety at 717.815.1314 for transportation.

    Campus Safety may provide transportation for medical care (referrals, x-rays, hospital tests and consultations) to York Hospital if no other means of transportation is available to the student. This service is not guaranteed especially during inclement weather.

    At times, when Campus Safety is not available for transport, transportation can be provided for a fee by the local ambulance company or a local cab company.

    Repeated appointments or care for chronic conditions requiring transportation off campus is the responsibility of the student. Bus service and taxi service are available from campus.
