WE MOVED!

The Wellness Center for Counseling and Health has recently been relocated.  We are now at 605 Grand Avenue, in the newly renovated 3 story yellow Victorian house.

Our Hours

The Center is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.  Services are available to all full-time and part-time students. 

Appointments Preferred

While emergency walk-ins will be accommodated, we ask that patients call ahead to make an appointment to be seen. 

The Health Office is staffed by a full-time Nurse Practitioner and a part-time Pediatrician.

New Jersey Health Record Requirements

All students are required by the college and under New Jersey State law to have completed health records on file in the Health Center.

All full time students (12 credits or more) are mandated by New Jersey state law to have the Hepatitis B vaccine series. We strongly recommend you begin this series of vaccinations before you enter Centenary College.

All health forms must be completed in their entirety no later than the first day of classes. Accurate records are of vital importance, especially when a student has a preexisting health or emotional problem. This will assure continued and optimal health care.

Student identification cards and registration will be withheld if health records are not submitted to the Health Center.

Privacy and Confidentiality

Information will not be released to anyone without the written consent of the student except as provided by law in cases of medical or psychiatric emergencies, state-mandated reporting of infectious diseases, or in compliance with a legally-issued subpoena.

Physician

The college physician has weekly office hours on campus by appointment (call ext. 2206). At times, it will be necessary to make referrals to specialty physicians or hospitals in the area. This will be at the expense of the student.

Hackettstown Community Hospital

Hackettstown Community Hospital on Willow Grove Street is the hospital serving our area for emergencies. The Hackettstown Rescue Squad will transport a student experiencing an emergency to the hospital. In all other cases, a student is responsible for arranging his or her transportation to and from the hospital or physician’s office via a friend, family member, or the local taxi services.
