The Health Center is located directly across from the Reed Dining Commons in the Aroostook apartment complex. A nurse practitioner is available for walk-in traffic or by appointment. Scheduled hours for the center are Monday - Friday 8am - 12 noon when the college is in session; however, should the health center be closed due to illness, or some other unforeseen circumstance, students should seek emergency care at The Aroostook Medical Center. The college will not assume any financial responsibility for any student's medical costs regardless of whether or not the campus health center is closed during scheduled hours.
All students are required to provide immunization certifications as required by the State of Maine. For more information, contact the health center.
Students are welcome to stop in for pamphlets on all kinds of medical subjects, to have questions answered or to make appointments for examinations. Services available include: physical exams; pap smears; breast exams; sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing and treatment; laboratory tests; and treatment for routine health problems such as cholesterol, mononucleosis, strep throat, pregnancy and tuberculosis. Information and immunizations are given for measles, German measles and tetanus/diphtheria. Birth control counseling and materials are available at the health center, as is personal counseling. Crisis counseling with the school's clinical psychologist must be arranged through the health center.
The health center services are available to NMCC students who have paid the health fee.
