Welcome to the Community Medical Center! The Community Medical Center strives to provide the highest quality of patient-centered services for students. Our providers and medical staff are highly trained and experienced to deliver a full range of diagnostic and treatment services. The Community Medical Center is located at the northwest corner on the Wells campus (directly across from Dodge Residence Hall). We hope the information listed on this page is beneficial! If you have any questions or would like additional information please contact the Medical Center at 315-364-3273.


The Health Center Committee (HCC) acts as a liaison between the Campus Community and the Medical Center. The HCC meets on a regular basis to discuss student concerns and consider matters of importance to the health of the student community. Also, the HCC meets with the Medical Center every semester to discuss concerns. The HCC is a part of the  student government (Collegiate Cabinet).

To set up an appointment at the Medical Center please call
ext. 3273
ext. 3388

All visits are by appointment, unless of course there is an emergency. When calling for an appointment please identify yourself as a Wells College student and explain the reason for the visit. If you are extremely sick, please express urgency when scheduling your appointment. The Medical Center will try their best to work around your class schedules, but understand that there may be times when we have no other time available than during a class time.

If you are unable to keep your appointment PLEASE call the office and cancel!

Also, please remember to bring your student ID and any secondary insurance information to your appointment!
It is the policy of the Community Medical Center to review submitted Health Reports for compliance with NYSDOH, Public Health Law 125, as it pertains to post-secondary institutions. The report includes a Health History, an Authorization Form (consent to provide medical services to anyone under 18 years old must have parent or guardian signature), home physician information, Immunization Record, the Meningococcal Vaccine Information Sheet (to be signed by parent or adult student) and a Physical Examination Form. All students received these forms in the Enrollment Handbook.

If these forms are not received it could result in a students dismissal from the College - including all sports or other campus activities and housing. NYS resident students must comply with proof of immunization or exemption within 30 days, or 45 days for out-of-state or foreign resident students. Wells College is obligated to dismiss non-compliant students under state law. Proof of immunization or exemption will be required for readmission to Wells College.

Every Friday the Kinney Drug Store Pharmacy in Moravia delivers prescriptions to the Community Medical Center. In order to fill a prescription you must send your prescription or have your physician send your prescription to Kinney's. After sending your prescription you must call the pharmacy to give them your insurance information and to find out if you have a co-pay and how that should be paid. If there is a cost associated with the prescription it must be at the Community Medical Center in time for delivery. If it is not, then your prescription will not be delivered. You must be present at time of delivery if you have a prescription for a controlled substance.
