When the Health Center is closed
Medical care is available at Brooks Memorial Hospital on a fee for service basis. Services received outside of the Health Center (i.e. area hospitals/emergency rooms, laboratories, specialists) are not covered by the Health Fee, and are billed on a fee for service basis.
Is there a fee for service?
Many students are unaware that Health Services are available free of charge on campus in LoGrasso Hall. The Student Health Center is open to all SUNY Fredonia students who have paid the mandatory health fee . Students are seen by appointment or on a walk-in basis.
Who will I see?
The staff includes a doctor, nurse practitioners, nurses and a medical technologist. They provide confidential care for your individual needs. Whether your needs are simply talking to someone, or actual care for an illness or injury, the Health Services offered at LoGrasso Hall can be your first step in getting the help that you may need.
In the event that a referral is indicated, we can assist with the arrangements. Obvious emergency situations would be treated at the Brooks Memorial Hospital.
What Health Services are offered at LoGrasso Hall Health Center?
Immunizations and allergy shots
Allergy injections are administered to students on a limited basis. The health center staff will administer allergy injections only if the student has reached a stable, maintenance dosage. For example, the student receives the same dose each week or month. The student must provide their own serum and specific orders from the prescribing allergist. Allergy injections that are on a "build up" phase cannot be given. The health center does charge $35.00 per semester for this service. The health center staff can assist with making arrangements for the students to receive build up allergy injections at a local physician's office if requested.
Contact the Health Center at 673-3131 for any questions or for further information on this policy.
Colds and minor health problems should not prevent class attendance. If you miss a class due to a more serious health problem, and have been evaluated at the Health Center, explain the situation to your professor(s). It is the policy of the Student Health Center to NOT issue an excuse from class or written verification that you were seen here. In the event that the illness requires that you miss one week or more of classes, and you have been appropriately evaluated at the Health Center, then a verification can be issued at the medical provider's discretion.
Health Center Home Page
The LoGrasso Hall Health Center home page is designed to provide students, parents, faculty and staff with information concerning services offered as well as information about health related topics. The home page is accessed through the Fredonia.edu home page. We can be found by clicking on the "Administration" tab followed by the "Student Affairs" tab, and then the "Health Center" tab. As the home page is brought up into view, a picture of our staff and our mission statement are located prominently in the middle of the page.
To the left, are tabs that will assist you in navigating to the information that you may need.
To the right is a section labeled "Announcements" and "Health and Wellness" where we will put information regarding flu shots and health and wellness related activities and events offered through the health center and on campus.
Finally, in the right lower corner of the Health Center home page is the Health Matters Newsletter.
