The IVC Health and Wellness Center (HWC) on-campus location is currently closed during the campus closure. However, our medical doctor and nurse practitioner are here for you!
We are open Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 4:30 pm, via phone and Zoom conference for currently registered IVC students. For more information and to schedule an appointment, please call the "Ask a Nurse" hotline at (949) 451-5687.
If you require assistance with mental health services, you can call the "Ask a Nurse" hotline. You will be transferred to our mental health professional phone line and/or telemedicine line.
Currently, our HWC is not seeing students for Family Practice (i.e. reproductive care) or other non-emergency needs.
However, our "Ask a Nurse" hotline can help with:
- Flu and cold symptoms
- Pink eye
- Respiratory problems
The Health and Wellness Center is operated by a group of health care professionals who are dedicated to the wellness of IVC students, faculty and staff. Physicians and registered nurses offer basic outpatient services for the diagnosis and treatment of acute and subacute illness and injuries. For those medical and surgical problems that are beyond the scope of the Health and Wellness Center, patients will be referred to local community health facilities.
All currently enrolled students that have paid the health fee at Irvine Valley College are eligible for student health services upon proof of enrollment. Faculty, staff, and students will receive first aid and referrals at no cost.
Student Health Fees
Students at IVC pay a mandatory student health fee each semester, which offsets the cost of some of our services. There is a nominal fee for some services, such as pharmacy, laboratory tests, exams, and immunizations. These fees must be paid in full prior to receiving services. The staff will explain all the extra fees at the time of your visit.
