The three organizations recently announced their plans to build a 48,000 square foot, community-based health and wellness center in New Albany’s historic Village Center.
This is an amazing project that will improve the lives of New Albany residents.
Living in New Albany, Ohio
According to the recent article I was reading, the new health and wellness center will blend such key components as:
- Personalized medicine
- Community Activities
According to agreements between the three organizations invoved, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center will lease more than 70 percent of the space in the center, which will be owned by the city of New Albany.
The health and wellness center is expected to allow the Wexner Medical Center to introduce its concept of personalized healthcare, which they call P4 Medicine.
What’s more, Healthy New Albany plans to promote healthy lifestyles to those living and working in the city through this new center.
Healthy New Albany founder Phil Heit called the new center a “destination place” that will serve “as a community hub of health and wellness activity.”
There will even be a research component to the new center, mostly through the Wexner Medical Center’s P4 Medicine concept, which will explore consumer participation, predicting and preventing disease and creating personalized life strategy wellness plans for individuals.
There is also expected to be a major programming component to the center, with classes given to meet the needs of all ages, athletic levels and more.
What’s more, city officials are saying that the wellness center could serve as a catalyst for even more development in the Village Center, which is closely located to a number of civic and social locations like the post office, the library, New Albany Plain Local School District campus and the McCoy Center for the arts.
Construction on the wellness center is expected to be complete by early 2014.
