Grand Opening of Healthy Living Center Marks Advancement in Wellness for Capital Region

Albany, NY (PRWEB) October 22, 2013

The Capital District YMCA, CDPHP and Hannaford Supermarkets today offered the community a first look at the future of health and wellness in the Capital Region at the grand opening of the all-new Healthy Living Center.

Senior leaders from the three organizations joined community officials to unveil the innovative, community-centered wellness facility, which offers a holistic approach to health and well-being, as well as assistance with health insurance needs.

Located inside Hannaford Supermarkets at 900 Central Avenue in Albany, NY, the Healthy Living Center represents a unique partnership between three leading Capital Region organizations that are committed to promoting health and wellness.

The 5,277-square-foot Healthy Living Center offers the community a variety of programs that support healthy living and wellness, such as group exercise, weight management and senior fitness classes, nutrition seminars and personal training, as well as programs that address specific health needs, such as Pedaling for Parkinson’s and diabetes prevention.

“Every day, there are individuals in this community who are struggling and believe health and well-being isn’t something they can hope for. They may be dealing with financial burdens, have tried and failed to be more active, or feel isolated and without the support of family and friends. Whatever their challenges, we’re here to extend a hand and an invitation: give us a chance to help,” explained David Brown, the President and CEO of the Capital District YMCA.

“CDPHP takes seriously our responsibility to support the health, vibrancy and quality of life for the communities we serve. Whether you’re taking a wellness class or selecting health care coverage, the Healthy Living Center will provide a convenient space for local residents to meet their health and wellness needs,” said Dr. John D. Bennett, President and CEO of CDPHP.

“Hannaford is deeply committed to addressing the health and wellness needs of the communities in which we live and operate. The Healthy Living Center will provide a critical service to individuals and families throughout the Capital Region,” said Rudy DiPietro, vice president of retail operations for Hannaford Supermarkets. “We look forward to welcoming our shoppers to this pioneering facility which will undoubtedly serve as a new model for community health services.”

The Healthy Living Center features a group exercise room, fitness equipment, personal lockers and shower facilities. Member services representatives from CDPHP will be available daily to answer questions regarding health and insurance needs, and will also be available to help people understand their Medicare and New York State Health Exchange options.

The Healthy Living Center will formally open to the public during an Open House on Saturday, October 5 from noon to 4 p.m. The afternoon will include tours of the Center, exercise demonstrations, wellness screenings and giveaways.

A full schedule of current programming can be found at Fees may apply for some offerings.

The Healthy Living Center will be open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
