 Campus Health & Wellness Centre

Have you checked out the ‘new and improved’ UWC Campus Health & Wellness Centre!

To those of you who had to visit the Campus Health Centre during the renovations towards the of last year (2013), we offer a big ‘thank you’ for putting up with the noise and dust that inevitably accompanies such a major process.  However, we are sure that a repeat visit to the new and improved UWC Campus & Wellness Centre will justify the discomfort you have had to endure during that phase!

The Campus Health Centre has been located on the 1st floor of the Community Health Sciences Building for the past 17 years and has been operated by Dr. D H Bagwandeen & Associates since 2003.  Whilst the facility was considered spacious, well set-out and adequately equipped, it had reached a point where the Health Centre needed an aesthetic upgrade. This, combined with new demands from the UWC community and the rapidly changing face of health care delivery the world over, prompted us to transform the Health Centre so as to better serve the UWC and surrounding communities.  What has since emerged is a modern, attractive, state-of-the-art facility which UWC can be proud of and which will effectively and efficiently serve the community for years to come.  Apart from the extensive aesthetic renovations to the Health Centre, we have established a much anticipated Health Shop; equipped the Health Centre with a mini theatre to perform more extensive medical and surgical procedures which previously had to be referred off Campus for treatment and introduced a comprehensive range of lifestyle modification and aesthetic medical services to our already extensive range of primary health care services!  This therefore, necessitated a change of name, and hence the UWC Campus Health and Wellness Centre was officially launched by the then Vice Rector: Student Development and Support Service, Prof. Lullu Tshiwula on the 4th December 2013.​


The new Health Shop is fully operational and offers the UWC community the convenience of getting natural and healthy supplements, vitamins and various other health-promoting products right here on Campus.  Leading skin care and weight management products will also feature prominently in the products stocked.  These new options will further foster our principle of ‘Prevention is always better than a Cure’ and will serve to complement the more holistic treatment usually offered.  The staff at the Campus Health & Wellness Centre is adequately educated and well informed to assist you in making the best choices towards achieving a state of optimal and balanced health, given the various options now available to you right here on Campus.  Feel free to come over and discuss your concerns and needs with us.  There will be many ‘opening specials’ and promotions to celebrate the launch of the new Health Shop, so watch the notice boards and visit us personally to find out more.  Other exciting new services being introduced are our medical / surgical weight management programs and a comprehensive range of medical aesthetic services … yes, you can have your “Botox” right here on Campus!!!

Dr. Bagwandeen has a special interest in lifestyle management, medical aesthetics and weight management and has extensive training and experience in these new and exciting fields.  The Health Centre will offer a full range of treatment options within this area of medical care and will operate over extended hours to accommodate your needs in this regards.  Please call on us to find out further details and about the range of care options available to you.  It is our intention to get the UWC community looking and feeling great about ourselves – all within a healthy body and a healthy mind.  The primary focus of the Health & Wellness Centre will always be on primary and preventative health care and in this regards, we have further invested in new equipment and additional staffing to help us sustain this goal.  Check out the more detailed list of services we offer to you in the brochure.  We look forward to being of service to you … and towards keeping you healthy, happy and brimming with personal confidence as a proud member of the UWC community.​
