Health Center

Hartwick's Health Center

Wellness is the condition of good physical and mental health, especially when maintained by proper diet, exercise and habits.

Our mission is to promote and maintain those conditions that will encourage students to realize their optimum physical, emotional, intellectual, and social well-being. To achieve this goal we practice preventative healthcare and assist students to become educated consumers of healthcare.

The Counseling Center is also housed in the Perrella Wellness Center. Together we strive to meet the wellness needs of the Hartwick community.
