Celebrating 100 Years of Health Services at UGA

University Health Center buildings in 1917, 1943, and today

The University of Georgia Health Center celebrates 100 years of service to UGA during the month of August, 2017.

In 1917, the Crawford W. Long Infirmary opened with one doctor and one patient room. Over the decades the health center has grown to accommodate the ever-growing UGA student population. The health center now is a 111,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility that hosts 13 clinics with a robust health and wellness mission.

In celebrating this marquis moment in UGA history the health center will kick off with a 100-year celebration on Friday, August 18th. Any member of the UGA community served that day by one of our clinics will receive a momentous dog-bone treat and be entered into a raffle to win 1 of 3 prizes:

  • $100 gift certificate to the UGA Shade Shack/UHC Vision Clinic
  • $100 gift certificate to the Physical/Massage Therapy Clinic
  • Gift basket full of Athens community offerings

Additionally, our UHC Vision Clinic/UGA Shade Shack will host a sunglass side-walk sale in the atrium, and we invite all to stop by our UHC Dental Clinic to receive a free toothbrush and toothpaste (no appointment necessary).
