The Center for Health and Wellbeing, set to open late 2018, will emphasize taking care of not just the body, but the mind and spirit, too. The intentionally integrated facility will inspire healthy living, reverse chronic diseases and increase longevity.
Earlier this year, the Winter Park Health Foundation announced its partnership with Florida Hospital in creation of the Center for Health & Wellbeing – the unique, one-stop facility for wellness, fitness and medicine currently under construction in Winter Park.
The medicine component will be anchored by Florida Hospital. Its 15,000 sq. ft. of clinical space will include primary care physician offices, lab services and a retail pharmacy on the first floor; and specialists with a focus on wellness on the second floor. In addition, Florida Hospital Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation will provide physical therapy, massage, and other integrative medicine services on the second floor adjoining the Peggy & Philip B. Crosby Wellness Center.
“We want to inspire people to get active and be healthy across their entire life span, and we look forward to our continued partnership with the Winter Park Health Foundation to accomplish our shared goals,” said Jennifer Wandersleben, administrator of Winter Park Memorial Hospital. “The Center for Health and Wellbeing will redefine our understanding of health through diverse, medically-based wellness services that provide our community unprecedented access to health professionals, services, knowledge and programs.”
