President Scott D. Miller announced that VWU will begin offering medical care to students in the new academic year through an on-campus Student Health Center managed by Sentara Medical Group. The Student Health Center will continue to be housed in Allen Village (Village II) and will provide first aid and general healthcare. The Center will be staffed by an advanced medical practitioner and a medical assistant from Sentara Medical Group. A physician will also be appointed by Sentara to serve as medical director of the Center and to be available to advise the advanced practitioner as needed during business hours. All Virginia Wesleyan students will be entitled to the benefits of the Student Health Center, including appointments and walk-in care for minor illnesses and common ailments. The Center will also offer routine testing and lab work as well as educational resources for the student population. Students requiring a higher level of care (or care outside of normal hours of operation) will have full access to Sentara Family Medicine Physicians located on Wesleyan Drive.
