Parrish Healthcare to Convert Health & Fitness Center Into Orthopedic and Sports Performance Center
By Space Coast Daily // April 9, 2021
The new 5,500-square-foot fitness center will operate seven days- a week
BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – Parrish Healthcare today announces its plan to convert Parrish Health & Fitness Center, located at 2210 Colonial Drive (Hwy. 50), into an orthopedic and sports performance center of excellence.
The plan includes moving the fitness center operations to a new location inside the Cross Roads Market Place (Target) Shopping Plaza.
At the height of the COVID-19 emergency, Parrish Healthcare closed its Parrish Health & Fitness Center to adhere to public health and safety guidelines. The center remains closed as a gym facility due to the realities of its design and how combatting viruses such as COVID-19 require different environments.
“With the necessity to shut down fitness center operations and the prevailing uncertainty about when the center could safely re-open it offered Parrish Healthcare leaders the time and opportunity to accelerate our plans to grow and enhance access to quality orthopedic and sports medicine programs and services, while also sustaining our commitment to wellness,” said Natalie Sellers, Parrish Healthcare spokesperson.
“Today, we are pleased to announce that we will convert the existing Parrish Health & Fitness Center into a state-of-the-art orthopedic and sports performance center of excellence featuring orthopedic medical specialists, sports medicine specialists, physical therapy, rehabilitation, and science-based sports performance training and services. The conversion will take place over the next several months and slated to open by the fall. In the meantime, the center will continue to be used as PMC’s COVID-19 vaccination clinic throughout the summer,” Sellers said. Additional operational details are not yet available.
As development continues on the planned orthopedic and sports performance center of excellence, Parrish Healthcare plans to open a new Parrish Health & Fitness Center at the Cross Roads Market Place (Target) shopping plaza by June.
The new 5,500-square-foot fitness center will operate seven days- a week from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. and will feature 24 individual exercise stations equipped with cardio and weight training equipment.
A web-based scheduling system will be available to allow individuals to self-schedule 45-minute blocks of time per individual station. Monthly membership ($35/month) and daily ($10/day) use options will be available. Build-out of the new fitness center is scheduled to begin in late April.
“We will design and set up the new fitness center location to operate using the very latest infection prevention best practices to provide a safe workout environment for everyone and look forward to welcoming former and new members to the new fitness center site,” said Sellers.
