Wellness Center Resumes Evening Hours


The Wellness Center at Wyandot Memorial Hospital has resumed its evening hours of 4 to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

New or existing Wellness Center members can call the hospital department to schedule their exercise time and receive instructions for screening of COVID-19 symptoms, including fever.

Population Health and Wellness Director Byron Morales, MD, noted their patients, members and staff are continuing to observe the best practices for limiting the spread of the coronavirus, including wearing face masks/coverings, maintaining physical distancing, wiping down equipment after each use, using hand sanitizer and washing hands frequently.

Dr. Morales said Wellness was one of the outpatient services closed at the start of the pandemic as required by state orders. The department re-opened in May by appointment; first for patients in the cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs, then for center members, SilverSneakers, hospital volunteers and employees.

“We’ve planned for this transition since re-opening,” Dr. Morales explained, “and are glad to offer the evening hours with the return of cooler weather and limited daylight.”

Currently, Wellness hours for community memberships, SilverSneakers, volunteers and employees are Mondays and Wednesdays from 4 to 7 p.m., and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 to 7 p.m.

A membership at the Wellness Center is $30 per month and $15 for a member’s significant other. That fee includes the use of all equipment, a wellness assessment, exercise and nutrition consultations, weekly weigh-ins, monthly measurements, blood pressure screenings and a full lipid panel twice a year.

The Wellness Center is closed weekdays from 12 to 1 p.m., and reserves Mondays and Wednesdays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 to 4 p.m., as well as Fridays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., for medically-monitored cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation patients.
