After 13 years in its Greenwood Mall location, The Medical Center Health & Wellness Center will begin operations in a new facility in Chandler Park beginning Monday, December 19. The new Health & Wellness Center is located at 1857 Tucker Way off Cave Mill Road and is housed in the building adjacent to Chandler Park Dental, the office of Eli Jackson, D.M.D.
“The change in location of The Medical Center Health & Wellness Center is reflective of the growth we have experienced in recent years,” said Linda Rush, Director of Community Wellness for The Medical Center. “The Center has become a destination point for patrons rather than just mall shoppers stopping by. We are seeing more and more patrons being referred to us by their healthcare providers for our services.”
The Center offers educational classes, exercise classes, blood pressure checks, health screenings, support group meetings and a lending health library. Specialized services offered by physician referral include the Diabetes Education Program, Medical Nutrition Therapy and the Healthy Weight Program for Kids.
Since opening in 1998, over 200,000 patrons have visited the Center and benefited from the many services offered. Currently, the Center averages 1,400 patron visits each month.
The Center is staffed by registered nurses, dietitians and health educators. The new hours of operation are Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Wednesday and Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and closed on Saturday and Sunday. For more information, call (270) 745-0942 or (877) 800-3842.
