Northwest Community Healthcare (NCH) announces two ribbon cutting ceremonies to celebrate two additions to the hospital campus.
“We are very excited to be kicking off 2018 with two new ventures to benefit our community,” says Stephen Scogna, President and CEO of NCH. “We have opened a new retail outpatient pharmacy to make access to prescriptions and other key medical needs more convenient for our patients. Our second venture involves a significant renovation to our Wellness Center to meet the growing health and wellness needs of our community.”
The grand re-opening/ribbon cutting of the NCH Wellness Center will take place at 4 p.m. on Monday, January 22, at 900 West Central Road. The $1 million renovation creates more space for members of the state-of-the-art facility. Highlights of the updated center include over a hundred new pieces of cardio and strength training equipment and an artificial turf where cross functional training and the popular High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) can take place.
The NCH Wellness Center offers group exercise programs such as yoga and spin classes, nutrition programs, a MedFit program that is based on the principle of exercise as medicine, and a spa that includes massage, acupuncture, hair salon, mani-pedis and more. It also features a pool, whirlpool, steam room and warm water therapy pool for arthritis patients.
On opening day, the public is invited to tour the facility, watch demos of the new equipment, participate in a vendor fair and meet personal trainers. Tours, giveaways and incentives will be offered throughout the week.
Another ribbon cutting to celebrate the opening of NCH’s new retail community pharmacy has been scheduled for 1 p.m. on Tuesday, January 23 in the Busse Center, 800 West Central Road. Meet our new Pharmacy Manager Sean Gale and his staff, learn how to transfer prescriptions, participate in a raffle and take advantage of giveaways. The pharmacy is located on the first floor of the Busse Center across from Patient Registration.
