Services
General Geneva College Health Services is deeply committed to:

  • servicing the health needs of the Geneva College students
  • providing professional staff members to help you in the event of an illness or other health related concern
  • maintaining confidentiality
  • advocating a healthy, Christian lifestyle

To accommodate students' schedules and care for unexpected illnesses, we have found that a walk-in format best serves the students needs. Students may want to visit the Health Services Department for health assessment and treatment, health education and counseling, referrals, minor injury care and follow-up, allergy injections, and other health-related needs. There is no charge for routine services rendered in the Nave Infirmary.

Medical Emergencies
For true, life-threatening emergencies occurring on campus, dial 9-9-1-1 to dispatch the local Emergency Response Team. Please remember to notify the dispatcher of the Geneva College extension from which you are calling from.

Physician Services
Upon arrival to the Health Services Department, a nurse who will advise the proper treatment for the patient's medical complaint must first evaluate each patient. If indicated, the nurse may make an appointment with the physician. The nurse makes all doctors' appointments only after evaluation.

Confidentiality
The relationship between you as a patient and any of the Health Services Department staff is strictly confidential. You are entitled to privacy and confidentiality, and to informed consent to the extent provided by the law. Information can be released only with your verbal or written consent.
