Qualified, friendly staff

Three hospitals nearby
When needed, the DSHSC refers students to nearby hospitals (Lourdes Hospital, UHS Wilson Medical Center and UHS Binghamton General Hospital). A number of walk-in clinics in Greater Binghamton offer evening and weekend hours for non-emergency care when the center is closed, including UHS Walk-In Centers.
Ambulance service available
Harpur’s Ferry, a student-run ambulance service, provides emergency medical services and transportation 24 hours a day when classes are in session. The ambulance is staffed by certified emergency medical technicians, advanced EMTs and personnel certified in advanced first aid. Students on and off campus are eligible for this free service by calling 607-777-3333.
The DSHSC is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Healthcare. This accreditation recognizes the superb care we deliver to students.
