The Keefe Health Center's operating principles are built on the ideas of accessible and comprehensive care for the students of Amherst College.
The staff at the Health Center are committed to integrating primary prevention with clinical health services. In addition to the treatment of acute and chronic conditions, the Health Center takes a primary role in the coordination of care for our students including initiation of referrals as needed and collaboration with other departments on campus. Staff members at the Health Center recognize that each student is an individual and will be uniquely impacted by physical, emotional, social and environmental factors. We strive to incorporate these factors into the health care and educational programming we provide. Through collaboration with the Center for Counseling and Mental Health and Sports Medicine, as well as various other departments, we advocate for a healthy campus community.
