Dr Helga van Heerden

The Centre was founded in 2021 by Dr Callie Passano, as a tribute to his late wife, Dr Helga van Heerden. The vision, mission and purpose of the Centre is dedicated to her memory, as well as her passion for and contribution to the medical profession.
The core vision of the Centre is captured by the symbol of the Tree of Life, which represents re-birth, positive energy and new beginnings. Much like the life cycle of trees, our lives can experience seasons of darkness and light, death and re-birth. The Tree of Life therefore also symbolises eternal life and the aspiration that the legacy of Dr Helga van Heerden will grow and flourish to be evergreen through the establishment of this Centre. The practitioners and staff are dedicated to serving the community with the commitment, compassion and care that aligns with her life and legacy.
