KentuckyOne Health is launching a new concept in prevention and wellness with the opening of the first of three Healthy Lifestyle Centers providing medically supervised exercise, nutrition counseling, stress management and more to help people get and stay healthy.
The first new center is now open at Medical Center Jewish Northeast (2401 Terra Crossing Blvd.) and all employees are invited to a special “sneak peek” open house on Thursday, May 29, from 4-5 p.m. to tour the facility and learn more about its services. A grand opening event for the community is planned for Saturday, June 14, from 9 a.m. to noon at Medical Center Jewish Northeast.
The Healthy Lifestyle Centers offer three distinct services:
1. Lifestyle Medicine, a fitness membership program available to anyone who can benefit from exercise and education coordinated by nurses and exercise physiologists. They offer personal health coaching for people coping with diabetes, pain, cancer, obesity, heart disease and more.
2. Cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation, a service typically covered by insurance for 36 sessions following a qualifying heart or lung condition.
3. Integrative medicine to include massage therapy, meditation, acupuncture, yoga, chronic muscle pain therapy and more.
To help people determine the best alternative therapies, the Healthy Lifestyle Centers also offer consultations with a board-certified integrative medicine physician, which can be helpful for individuals with chronic pain less than six months, arthritis, digestive issues, stress/anxiety, depression, taking multiple medications, insomnia and cancer.
The Healthy Lifestyle Center at Sts. Mary & Elizabeth Hospital will open in late summer 2014. The opening of the new facilities will be followed by a complete renovation of the Doctors’ Office Building location on the Jewish Hospital campus at 250 E. Liberty Street.
This project was made possible by the Jewish Hospital & St. Mary's Foundation which provided $3 million for capital and startup costs.
