It was last May that LCC carried out its "reorganization plan." Administrators' contracts were not renewed and the college was done having the Health Services Department around anymore. [Full disclosure: I was part of the Health Services Dept.]
Almost a year after, I've come to terms with the decision made by those at the helm at LCC. However, I can't understand how the college is still charging students a fee for something that doesn't exist there.
Apparently LCC is charging $5 per student, per semester, for Health Service(s). I don't know how college brass can justify this fee. There must be something that I don't know.
Campus police officers were tasked with responding to medical emergencies when Health Services staff wasn't on campus. But if somebody in their custody was hurt or had a medical issue to address, they would call us to assist. I have no idea how campus PD is faring now without the resources that were there once.
I'm sure LCC heads can give us a clever answer as to why they're taking money from students for a phantom line item on their printouts. And I'm sure they can explain why they still have a fee for Health Service for a department specifically called Health Services, the one that is not there today.
Only they know.
Ricardo Solis described Health Services as a luxury. I hope he enjoyed his time at La Posada, courtesy of the college district taxpayers. The president's house on campus wasn't up to his standard, supposedly, and thus needed particular accommodations.
