(Millersburg, OH) – Effective August 1, 2014, Pomerene Hospital will become the new manager of Kinetics, Fitness for Life (Kinetics). Pomerene and all of those involved believe this is a great opportunity to continue to focus on improving the health and wellness of the Holmes County population.
Since the passage of the Affordable Care Act in March 2010, the nation’s healthcare services have begun to shift away from “sick care” to wellness and preventative care. Hospitals and health systems around the country have joined the wellness bandwagon and added health and wellness programs for their employees as well as the community in general.
“We feel this is a natural progression for us,” states Pomerene Hospital CEO Tony Snyder. “As healthcare is moving beyond the four walls of the hospital, we see many opportunities in fitness and wellness services.”
Expanding into this area allows Pomerene Hospital to connect with a number of strategic goals. First, it’s consistent with our mission of “caring for our community’s health.” It also fits into chronic disease management and community health and wellness, more popularly referred to as population health. A Pomerene and Kinetics partnership promotes making appropriate adjustments to focus on improving the health and wellness of Holmes County.
Although Pomerene Hospital will serve as the new manager of Kinetics, Dr. Staush Cass, owner of Kinetics, will remain involved to allow for a smoother, more successful conversion.
Cass feels this is an exciting opportunity for Kinetics, Pomerene, and the Holmes County community. “I’m really looking forward to this transition and I believe all our current members as well as the whole community will benefit greatly.”
There are no immediate plans to change staffing, or pricing of Kinetics memberships. Throughout the transition, Pomerene will evaluate the current operational processes, and look for ways to improve and potentially expand services to better serve the overall health wellness needs of the community.
Kinetics, located at 1237 Glen Drive in Millersburg, opened its doors in 2005. It offers state-of-the-art fitness equipment and wellness programs to nearly 500 current members. Hours of operation are Monday -Thursday 5am-9pm, Friday- 5am-8pm, Saturday- 6am-8pm, and Sunday- 1pm-5pm.
