The Student Health Center's primary responsibility is to provide the highest quality nursing and medical care for the student/patient. The College makes every effort to have a positive impact on the health experiences of the student. Services available include health promotion and disease prevention as well as illness treatment. This includes education for healthy lifestyles and disease prevention, a caring, supportive and confidential environment and clinical expertise. Students are encouraged to use these services.
The scope of services provided by the Student Health Center includes, but is not limited to:
- Walk-in, acute medical care
- Medical visits by appointment
- Allergy injections
- Minor surgeries
- Laboratory services
- Many free medications

Medical services are available to the student on a daily basis Monday through Friday. Medical conditions that require continuous care, specialized or surgical, are handled either by referral or a return to the primary physician at the student's expense. Medical records are strictly confidential and are released only with a student's written consent. Record-Release forms can be obtained at the Health Center.
Delaware Valley College assumes no financial responsibility for the medical, surgical or dental services required by the student.
