Vineyard Primary Care, a Hamot Healthcare Center, at Mercyhurst North East opened its doors in the fall of 2007, in an effort to bring a wider range of healthcare services to the North East community and the MNE campus. The 17,000-square-foot building houses Vineyard Primary Care offices, along with TRAC Rehab services, diagnostic x-ray, mammography and ultrasound, and cardiology diagnostic services including nuclear stress testing, echocardiography, and vascular exams.

An infirmary for MNE students is operated through Hamot’s Primary Care office. The new facility has 12 exam rooms and offers health services including vaccines, physical exams, and appointments for students needing medical attention. The infirmary is also open to Mercyhurst staff and is operated five days a week.

Forms and Documents

Each year, beginning in May, the admissions office sends out important health forms to new students. These forms are required if you will be living on campus or if you plan on taking advantage of the services provided by Vineyard Primary Care. If you are a new student, or returner who is moving onto campus, you will want to fill out the following forms before the start of the school year (or your particular term of entry / relocating to campus).

To request a hardcopy of any of your misplaced forms, please call admissions at 814-725-6144.

Counseling and Support

The Counseling Center offers services and programs to support and enhance students' well-being and personal growth. Counseling services are available to all students. Appointments are made directly with the campus counselor who is a licensed psychologist and has an office on campus. When the counselor feels it is in the best interest of the student, referrals are made to off-campus resources. These off-campus resources are the financial responsibility of the student. Counseling Center hours are posted outside the office, located in Miller 7B.

In 1995, the 1995 North Atlantic Regional Baseball Tournament was held at Hirtzel Field.

The field is named for the late North East, PA, businessman, industrialist and philanthropist, Philip D. Hirtzel, whose legacy in North East was that of quietly financing local students' college studies.
