Policy Procedures

Transportation for Off Campus Medical Care

  • Students sent from campus by a campus official to a local Rochester-area Emergency Department (typically by ambulance) are encouraged to find a friend or family member to return them to campus upon discharge.
  • If unable to secure a ride, students should use Apple Transport 585- 427-7330. The agreed upon charge is $40 from Unity Hospital, which the University will pay. Apple will provide an invoice to the University for payment on a monthly basis. Cash payment is not required at the time of transport.
  • Students returning from an alcohol or substance visit will be assessed a $50 fee for the transportation, which will be applied to their student account.

Students specifically referred by Hazen staff to a Brockport facility (eg Strong West Urgent Care, ASAP Urgent Care) may be transported by Hazen staff using the University car during regular business hours (8am – 4:45pm).

When Hazen is closed students who are medically stable (not needing an ambulance), and require off-campus urgent or emergency care should use their own, or have a friend/family member provide transportation.

  • Ambulances can only transport to an Emergency Department, not Urgent Care
  • Hazen staff will not transport students to a non-Brockport area medical facility.
  • After-hours transportation is arranged by the student, either via friend/family or Apple Transport, at the student’s expense.
  • The University does not provide transportation for routine medical appointments.
  • Residence Life staff cannot provide medical transportation.

FONEMED (nurse advice service) – available after regular office hours, call the Student Health Center and follow the instructions to connect with FONEMED. The nurse will help determine whether to seek medical care off-campus, and the level of care necessary.
