Welcome to the Infirmary

The VMI Infirmary is a modern medical facility located in the Post Hospital building on the VMI campus.  It is open 24 hours a day during the fall and spring semesters.  A team of nurses, a nurse practitioner and a physician evaluate and treat cadets for routine illnesses and injuries.  There are 18 inpatient beds for overnight observation and isolation for those cadets who cannot comfortably or safely stay in barracks.  Cadets with more severe illnesses are referred to the local hospital or a specialist for care.

There is no extra charge to visit the Infirmary or see the nurse or doctor.  Many medications are dispensed at no charge.  Lab tests ordered or appointments off Post will be the responsibility of the cadet.

It’s the time of year for seasonal allergies, tick bites and sunburn. Come speak with a health care professional at the Infirmary if you have any problems. It is also not uncommon to experience increased academic and emotional stress as the year comes to a close. Cadet Counseling on the 2nd floor of the Post Hospital can provide support and advice if you are struggling.

REMINDER: do not forget to pick up any allergy serums or personal medications stored at the Infirmary when you leave for the summer. The Infirmary will remain open throughout the summer Monday through Friday, from 0700-1600.

Have a wonderful summer and congratulations to the VMI class of 2015!
