Student Health and Wellness

Student Health ServicesIndian Hills is one of the few community colleges in Iowa to offer Student Health and Wellness assistance to its students.

Located on the first floor of Trustee Hall on the Ottumwa Campus, the Student Health and Wellness Center is open Monday through Thursday, 7:15 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.

Jackie Greenfield, our Registered Nurse Practitioner, works with an area physician to provide services to all Indian Hills Community College students.

There is no charge for office visits to the Student Health and Wellness Center, although there may be a minimal fee for certain laboratory tests, vaccinations, or medical supplies.

Student Health and Wellness services are available to all currently enrolled students. Confidential health care, counseling, and referral assistance are provided to help students maintain the wellness necessary to achieve their academic and vocational goals.
