New Facility

The John M. and Silvia Ferretti LECOM Medical Fitness & Wellness Center

The Challenge

As part of its community service mission, Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) set forth the goal of uniting a comprehensive fitness center with clinical services and medical offices. LECOM wanted to create a single destination that reflected their commitment to preventive, total-person health care.

Reducing rising healthcare costs for the Millcreek Health System organization

Utilization has increased 25%

The Solution

LECOM chose Power Wellness Management as the college’s strategic partner for planning and operating the fitness center.

LECOM and Power Wellness were committed to strengthening the health and well-being of the greater Erie community with a medically based fitness and wellness center.

The partnership with Power Wellness helped LECOM deepen the college’s role within the community as a trusted resource for preventive and medical care.

During facility construction, Power Wellness pre-sold memberships and began aggressively marketing the center to the community.

The Power Wellness team assisted with every aspect of development including the selection and placement of furniture, fixtures, and equipment, as well as developing the center’s operating systems.

As a result, the center has flourished and continues to grow.
