The Parkview Women’s Health Center, on the campus of Parkview Regional Medical Center, is expanding and will now be known as the Parkview Center for Healthy Living. In an effort to better serve the community, the Parkview Center for Healthy Living will offer new wellness services and expand current services and classes. The center will continue to be a resource for educational programs, free and reduced cost screenings, exercise classes and wellness coaching.
“This is a time of the year when people are typically thinking about their health and changes they want to make,” said Sue Ehinger, president of Parkview Hospital and Affiliates. “We looked at the needs of our community and recognized that people of all ages needed a place to go for information about wellness – and it means more than going to the doctor, eating right and exercising. The Center for Healthy Living will help to meet those needs.”
The Center for Healthy Living also will introduce a new online, interactive assessment tool that can help people find personal answers about health and wellness. The assessment evaluates a person’s physical and emotional health, resiliency and strength, along with his or her ability to cope with stress and control over health-related matters.
“As a physician, I’m most excited about the launch of an online, interactive assessment tool that will help people find personal answers about health and wellness,” said Mitchell Stucky, MD, president, Parkview Physicians Group. “Based on the outcome of the assessment our nurse navigators will help people set personal wellness goals and create strategies to help them meet their goals using interactive tools and resources. Our philosophy is that nothing is permanent or unchangeable – and that success does not mean perfection.”
