Health Center

Health services at JCC

Jamestown Community College’s health centers promote health and wellness through nurse directed care and wellness counseling. Our registered nurses and staff are dedicated to helping you stay healthy.

The registered professional nurses in each health center are trained to assess and treat many minor health conditions and illnesses and evaluate the need for emergency care for students, faculty, and staff. Prescriptions for health conditions are NOT available at the health center. Patients who may require more extensive treatment and medical care will be referred to the appropriate facility such as emergency room, urgent care, or their own health care provider.

  • Jamestown Campus hours: M-Th: 9 a.m.-4 p.m., F: 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
  • Cattaraugus County Campus hours: M-F: 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
Health insurance

No health insurance?

Many students who come to JCC’s Health Center looking for medical care do not have health insurance. After examining and talking to a student about a health problem, we may need to refer the student to a doctor for prescriptions or further tests.

Affordable, low-cost health insurance is available

New York state students on the Jamestown Campus can make an appointment with Natalie Peterson or Scott Miller by calling 716.338.1024 or visiting them in the SBDC office in the Carnahan Center. They are certified insurance navigators who help those who need assistance obtaining a health insurance policy. Scott and Natalie can also travel to the North County Center to meet with students.
