Who can access the Wellness Center?
The Wellness Center is available to physical therapy patients and patients with a physician's order, plus employees' family members, volunteers, League members and Auxiliary members. Hospital employees can access the Wellness Center at no cost.
Aerobics classes are open to the public for a small fee.
Why would a physician order a program at the Wellness Center?
Many physicians see the Wellness Center as a valuable resource for prevention of heart and lung disease, and might recommend cardiac rehabilitation or pulmonary rehabilitation for "borderline" patients - those who are at high risk for developing coronary or pulmonary disease, but who have not suffered a recent coronary or pulmonary event. Physicians also recommend active programs for individuals with diabetes, cholesterol problems, or those who are overweight.
Where is the Wellness Center?
We are located in the lower level of Park Court Medical Center, which is inside the main lobby of Pekin Hospital at Court and 13th Streets. Free, lighted parking surrounds the hospital campus.
