Orland Park Health & Fitness Center is the proud recipient of the 2019 Certified Facility of the Year Award!
The Medical Fitness Association (MFA), a non-profit organization, was formed in 1991 to assist medically-integrated health and fitness centers achieve their full potential. Each year, MFA certified facilities are nominated and recognized for Medical Fitness Facility and Professional of the Year awards. Awards were presented during the 28th Annual International Conference Awards Ceremony in Orlando, Florida. These awards celebrate and honor the best and the brightest in medical fitness center management.
Along with being recognized as the Certified Facility of the Year, Orland Park Health & Fitness Center completed a successful recertification process by the MFA in December 2018 with a score of 100%!
Orland Park Health & Fitness Center is viewed as a tremendous asset by the Village of Orland Park, IL as it serves roughly 3,900 members. The 78,000 sq. ft. facility originally opened in 2001 and was first MFA certified in 2014 under the name “Palos Health & Fitness Center.” Although no longer owned by Palos Hospital, the facility maintains a relationship with the Palos Health System that is stronger than ever. This development of this relationship has led to steady referrals from cardiac rehab, bariatrics, physical therapy, and pulmonary rehab—all which are represented on the Center’s Medical Advisory Committee. These referrals helped the facility grow its Next Steps Fitness Programs™ substantially in the last few years, most notably with an increase from 125 participants in 2017 to 229 participants in 2018. Unique to the facility are programs specifically designed for individuals with Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis. Orland Park Health & Fitness Center is owned by the Village of Orland Park, IL and managed by Power Wellness. The facility boasts a 24% attrition rate, the lowest of all Power Wellness centers.
