Improving Health and Wellness One Step at a Time

Palmetto Health and the YMCA of Columbia are starting a new journey together, focused on improving the health and wellness of residents across the Midlands region. This joint effort is a stronger alignment than in the past, designed to further the missions of both organizations by better utilizing each other’s programs and services.

One of the first joint projects is a $6.8 million, 19,925 square-foot facility, located at 1089 Dutch Fork Road, which will feature a family medicine physician practice and a YMCA with a shared atrium and classroom space. Construction is underway and is slated for completion in Spring 2015. Both organizations look forward to offering enhanced opportunities for community members to improve their health.

The new facility is just one example of this new relationship. Both organizations look forward to offering enhanced opportunities for community members to improve their health, including new patient and community wellness programs as well as expanded existing programs. Other joint programs being developed for the new location could include health screenings, support groups and educational programs. Palmetto Health and the YMCA of Columbia are excited about the opportunities that this shared facility presents and are already looking to replicate it in other locations.
