The Mercy Health-Anderson HealthPlex Achieves Medical Fitness Facility Certification

May 24, 2024

Medical Fitness Facility Certification is the first and only certification offered specifically to facilities in the medical fitness industry—an industry that serves over four million members worldwide. Power Wellness is pleased to announce that our partner, Mercy Health-Anderson HealthPlex has achieved Medical Fitness Facility Certification by the Medical Fitness Association (MFA), the country’s leading organization dedicated solely to medically integrated wellness and fitness facilities. This Certification represents a significant commitment, on the part of the Mercy Health-Anderson HealthPlex, to offer the highest standards of professional expertise and quality programming.

Why the Medical Fitness Facility Certification Matters
The MFA’s Medical Fitness Facility Certification is recognized as a mark of excellence in the health and wellness industry. Based on the Association’s internationally recognized Standards and Guidelines for Medical Fitness Facilities, the certification process involves an in-depth, on-site review of a facility’s adherence to a set of prescribed standards and guidelines. The Medical Fitness Facility Certification process is an integral part of ensuring that facilities provide a high level of quality and safety in the programs and services they deliver in order for them to become fully integrated into the local continuum of healthcare.

“As the incidence of chronic disease continues to rise, the need for medical fitness facilities to offer a high standard of programming for the communities they serve is more important than ever,” said David Flench, FACHE, FMFA, President and CEO of the Medical Fitness Association. “Studies have shown that when people maintain an active lifestyle, especially in a safe environment, they reduce the risk of illness down the road. The Mercy Health-Anderson HealthPlex has taken an important step in providing this extraordinary level of care.”

We at Power Wellness are incredibly proud to have played a supporting role in Mercy Health-Anderson HealthPlex’s journey to achieve this prestigious recognition. Our team provided guidance and expertise throughout the certification process, ensuring that Mercy Health-Anderson HealthPlex met all the required criteria. We’re excited to continue collaborating with them in creating a healthier future for all.
