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.


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.


Week of May 21: We are open Monday through Friday 9AM-- 5PM.
Minimal labs will be sent this week due to the delay in result availability.
Please call for an appointment 845-758-7433.

SUMMER HOURS: The office will be open Monday through Friday 9AM- 5PM,
with limited Nurse Practitioner hours Monday, Wednesday and Friday by appointment only.

Please note: You do NOT have to have the Bard insurance to be seen here.
Please bring your most current insurance card with you to each visit.

If you will be staying in New York State after graduation and may be without insurance coverage,
please contact MARY MOYERS, a Health Navigator, at (845) 372-3233 to investigate your options.
