The Rhodes College Health Center is located in the Moore-Moore building. The main entrance is on the east side of the building. Handicap access is available on the south side of the Health Center, closest to the Refectory. Students can seek advice and treatment for a wide range of medical needs, such as strep, flu, treatment of ENT infections, and some in-house lab work, as well as a obtain a prescription.
Health Center hours are 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (closed 12:00 -1:00 PM), Monday through Friday. Students can see the staff nurse at no cost for routine health issues. There is also a Self-Care counter, where students can obtain a cough drop, Band-Aid or perhaps a decongestant. Should a student be referred to, or prefer to see the Nurse Practitioner during clinic hours, appointments will be available five days a week, 9:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. There is a $60 (for academic year 17/18) per-visit fee for each appointment with the Nurse Practitioner. No payment will be required at the time of service, as the fee will be billed directly to the student′s Rhodes account. Insurance is not accepted at the Health Center. Generally, medical services provided at the Health Center address most of our students′ medical needs; however students are still required to have insurance coverage to attend Rhodes College.
Off-campus services such as some laboratory work, x-rays, specialists, and emergency room visits will be the financial responsibility of the student. We will do our best to refer students to medical facilities that are covered by their personal insurance plans.
For an appointment, call 901-843-3895. Walk-ins are always welcome!
