Dear Wellness Center Member,

We are thrilled to announce that your Wellness Center will reopen on Monday May 25th. 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 restriped 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.

Great lengths are being taken to ensure the safest experience possible. In order to ensure that we can deliver a safe and effective environment upon your return, EJGH employees will be utilizing our facility to help us implement the new safety guidelines as we perfect issues such as “distancing” and cleanliness. Our goal is to provide a great experience when you return on the 25th that follows all new guidelines while being as close to what you previously experienced as possible. We will also ask that members assist us with wiping down equipment and respecting everyone’s space. We will ask that guests not occupy machines directly next to one-another. Classes will be limited in size and will require online registration. More details to come on how to register.

With that said, nearly every aspect of the facility will be open and functioning including free weights, machines, cardio equipment, the walking/jogging track, aerobics area, spin cycling area, the heated-therapy pool, the lap pool, the whirlpool, steam room, showers, and dressing rooms. The only services not returning right away will be massage, nutritional counseling and personal training.

We view this as an important return to “normal” and we are excited to welcome you back to our beautiful state-of-the-art 38,000 square foot fitness/disease management facility.
