Resources for Students

Health Services

Outpatient visits to any of the College physicians and nurse practitioners are by appointment only, except in the case of emergencies, which will be handled twenty-four hours a day when the College is in full session. To assist health services in providing consistent health care, students with disabilities are asked to send information from their personal physician regarding diagnoses, treatments, and medications to Medical Director, Pattie Groves Health Center, Mount Holyoke College, South Hadley, MA 01075.

It is highly recommended that students make an appointment with the medical director when they arrive on campus. The purpose of the visit is to plan ways the staff can complement care being provided by current providers and support special health care concerns. The Health Center is closed for the summer. If you have medical questions or concerns prior to arrival or wish to make an appointment in September, please call (413) 538-2121.
