Placeholder Image
If you’re looking to get fit with the help of the healthcare professionals at River Park, the hospital has opened a new wellness center that’s open to the general public.The wellness center got its start a little over three years ago for River Park patients focusing on rehab after suffering a heart attack or experiencing heart trouble. Since that time, the wellness center has seen over 350 patients and steadily grown its inventory of exercise equipment.With a knowledgeable staff on hand and the cardio equipment available, it made sense to open the facility so more people could use it to improve their overall health.“This is just one more way we are answering a need for our community right here at home,” said wellness center program director Craig Norris. “In addition to rehabilitation, the new wellness center allows gym access to patients, spouses, employees, and the entire community.”Anyone interested in using the facility can do so for a monthly fee of $29.99 or a daily user fee of $4.
