Parrish Healthcare has announced plan to convert Parrish Health & Fitness Center, located at 2210 Colonial Drive (Highway 50), into orthopedic and sports performance center of excellence. The plan includes moving the fitness center operations to a new location inside the Cross Roads Market Place (Target) Shopping Plaza.
At the height of the COVID–19 emergency, Parrish Healthcare closed its Parrish Health & Fitness Center to adhere to public health and safety guidelines. The center remains closed as a gym facility due to the realities of its design and how combatting viruses such as COVID–19 require different environments.
“With the necessity to shut down fitness center operations and the prevailing uncertainty about when the center could safely reopen it offered Parrish Healthcare leaders the time and opportunity to accelerate our plans to grow and enhance access to quality orthopedic and sports medicine programs and services, while also sustaining our commitment to wellness,”
said Natalie Sellers, Parrish Healthcare spokesperson.
She added, “We are pleased to announce that we will convert the existing Parrish Health & Fitness Center into a state–of–the–art orthopedic and sports performance center of excellence featuring orthopedic medical specialists, sports medicine specialists, physical therapy, rehabilitation, and science–based sports performance training and services. The conversion will
take place over the next several months and the facility is slated to open by the fall.
In the meantime, the center will continue to be used as PMC’s COVID–19 vaccination clinic throughout the summer.”
Parrish plans to open a new Parrish Health & Fitness Center at Cross Roads Market Place.
The new 5,500–square–foot fitness center will operate seven days– a–week from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. and will feature 24 individual exercise stations equipped with cardio and weight training equipment. A web–based scheduling system will be available to allow individuals to self– schedule 45–minute blocks of time per individual station.
Monthly membership ($35) and daily ($10) use options will be available. The buildout of the new fitness center is scheduled to begin in late April.
“We will design and set up the new fitness–center location to operate using the very latest infection prevention best–practices to provide a safe workout environment for everyone and look forward to welcoming former and new members to the new fitness center site,” said Sellers.
