We are thrilled to announce that your Wellness Center will reopen on Monday May 25th, 2021. All memberships will resume at the time of your first visit. All memberships will be extended the exact number of days we have been closed. When you return to the facility please stop by our front desk to speak with a member service representative to assist you with your payment details.

While we were closed we completed numerous improvements to the facility, including repainting of the parking lines, renovation of the men’s shower area, ensured all equipment is in working order, and cleaned and re-striped our indoor walking track. In addition to all of these improvements we also updated our membership software. With the new installation of our software all members will be asked upon their initial visit to update their membership contract. This contract will include an annual enhancement fee of $25. The purpose of this fee is to build a capital fund to purchase equipment or otherwise enhance the facility, based on member feedback. East Jefferson General Hospital will match the capital raised by the Wellness Center annually to further improve the facility…(click here to read more)
