Transportation

Please remember that Bard is located in a rural setting. The shuttle goes into Red Hook and Tivoli daily. However, most medical providers, especially specialists, are located in Rhinebeck (10-25 mins away), Kingston (20-40 mins), Poughkeepsie (45-60 mins) and Albany (90+mins). Bard College does not routinely provide transportation to scheduled off-campus medical or psychiatric appointments, and students will need to make their own arrangements.

SMOKING CESSATION

There are many resources available to assist with your decision to stop smoking. We offer nicotine replacement products and counseling at Health Service. Or you can get advice and free nicotine replacement products from New York State here.
Also check out the Quit Smoking Community or join their Facebook group for online support.

 ANNOUNCEMENTS

Welcome to the new students. Health Service is here to support your health and wellbeing during your tenure at Bard. We can help with most routine health issues. If you are unwell or have health concerns please call to schedule an appointment with one of our Nurse Practitioners.

Need to get to an appointment off campus? UBER and LYFT are now both available in the area, if you choose not to use a Zip car. As there is a limited amount of drivers available (the services just started in September), you should plan extra time for travel (it can take 30 mins for a driver to arrive). The CATS program is still available for mental health appointments.

Ticks and Lyme disease
It is getting to be that time of year again. The ticks are out and will be as long as temperatures are >34'F. Please be aware! 

Why do you get sick when you are tired?

PLEASE NOTE: FENTANYL DEATHS
 

                                                       HOURS

Please call for an appointment 845-758-7433.


Please note: You do NOT have to have the Bard insurance to be seen here.

We have a new Electronic Medical Record that does not work if we do not have your complete insurance information.
Please bring your most current insurance card with you to each visit.
If you only have a scanned copy of the card, you must either print it out (front and back)
or email it to healthservice@bard.edu prior to your visit.
