Mountain Care Center
In July of 2011, the College furthered its mission to address the health-related needs of the community by establishing the Mountain Care Center, located just a few miles from campus.  Patient care services offered at the Center include medication assistance for low-income and uninsured residents as well as health and wellness programs such as smoking cessation, nutrition counseling, medication therapy management, and health screenings. The prescription assistance program is designed to provide free medication for residents in the community who are uninsured and unable to afford their medications. The program offers a number of free maintenance prescription medications along with medication counseling. No prescription medication is sold at the site.
