Students are first evaluated by a triage nurse and either treated by the nurse per protocol or referred to a mid-level provider, Hubbs physician, or referred to a physician outside of the health center.
Priority MUST be given to seriously ill or injured students.
Students who are seriously ill or injured will be sent to Geneva General Hospital for further evaluation. Geneva General Hospital is located on North Street, directly at the end of Main Street heading north in Geneva.
It is the student's responsibility to discuss missed classes with his or her instructor. Per policy, no class excuses are issued.
Information shared at the health center is held under the strictest confidence. No health information will be shared with parents, professors or administrators without the permission of the student, which would require the student signing a written permission form.
For emergencies that occur while the health center is closed, call Security at ext. 3333 on campus, by cell phone at 1-315-781-3333 (please program this number into your cell phone), or go directly to the Geneva General Hospital Emergency Room.
Students with any questions about the health center and/or it's policies should ask to make an appointment with Betti Green, RN-C, ANP and Coordinator of Medical Services at Hubbs.
As part of the HWS Colleges Health requirements, students must provide Hubbs Health Center their health insurance information. Due to the fact that not all private health insurance plans offer coverage for out-of-network medical services, students have the option to enroll in a student health insurance plan. Enrollment in student health insurance is automatic and will appear on the student account statement along with the Fall term bill in July. If students do not wish to enroll in the student health insurance plan, they will need to waive enrollment online at www.gallagherstudent.com/hws. The type of health insurance the student has will not affect his/her ability to be seen at the Hubbs Health Center.
**Students who fail to complete the online waiver by August 15, 2014 will automatically be enrolled in the student health insurance plan and will be responsible for the cost.**
