One of the most important ways that the Winter Park Health Foundation-owned Crosby Wellness Center is different from a standard commercial gym is its membership to the Medical Fitness Association (MFA) and its plan to acquire Medical Fitness Association Certification after one year of operation.
To that end, Crosby will operate at a higher standard in many ways, from degreed staff and outcome tracking to a focus on community health and quality management. Crosby will also operate with medical oversight – an active Medical Advisory Committee (MAC) – a by-invitation-only group of some of the most forward-thinking physicians, healthcare and fitness professionals in Central Florida. Together in collaboration with high-level Crosby staff, the MAC will provide advisement and oversight for Crosby programs and services.
Last Friday, during the first of many regular meetings, the Medical Advisory Committee was treated to a sneak-peek of Crosby and the Center for Heath & Wellbeing during a hard-hat tour of the quickly-progressing site.
