Community Health Resources

Sometimes, you may need to access off-campus health resources even when the Hamre Center is open.  In providing these resources, our is to make you aware of possible resources in the community that may be helpful. This list is not comprehensive of all available resources, and we do not endorse any of the following services as the right option for any specific individual.

Medical Community Resources

Primary care care clinics are similar to the Hamre Center in scope of services they provide. You may choose to schedule with a primary clinic off campus for many reasons such as better insurance coverage, time and availability to schedule appointments, or they may have labs, procedures, or imaging (such as X-ray) available that Hamre Center does not.

When you get to the map, you can search by your specific care needs, insurance/payment options, and geography. You can also type Macalester College into the location box to find providers in our area, that we work with more regularly.  In each provider profile, if the provider was invited and logged in through Macalester it will show their affiliation with us at the bottom of their profile.
