Tri-Area Community Health provides health services for Ferrum College students . We offer students affordable, high-quality health care for physical medical concerns as well as behavioral health issues. We also provide a variety of free services and medications specifically for students. Our goal is to improve the quality of life of students and promote overall health and wellness by making high-quality health care accessible and affordable.
Our Health Center
At Tri-Area Community Health, Ferrum College students have access to our health clinic by appointment. Whether you’re in need of a check-up or have a specific medical concern, we can help. We also offer minor surgery services, such as the removal of warts or moles, x-ray services when needed, and much more. When you choose to visit Tri-Area Community Health, you’ll receive professional treatment from a knowledgeable and caring staff.
Virtual Clinic Appointments
Tri-Area also offers students virtual care appointments. For health concerns that don’t require a physical exam, a virtual visit can make receiving health care more convenient and safer. Please contact Tri-Area for more information about scheduling a virtual care appointment.
At Tri-Area, we understand that not all health concerns are medical, and that behavioral health is just as important as physical health. That’s why we offer Ferrum College students behavioral health services that go hand-in-hand with the medical care you receive at our clinic. Whether you’re dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, other mental health concerns, or need help dealing with the stresses associated with going to school, we can help. Our behavioral health team consists of psychologists, counselors, social workers, and psychiatric providers, and they work together with your medical provider to offer comprehensive care.
Free Medications & Health Services for Ferrum Students
We understand that health care and prescription medications can be expensive. However, we strive to ensure that the price of health care does not deter anyone from getting the care or medication they need to feel their best. That’s why we offer specific services and medications at no charge for Ferrum students.
