Groundbreaking for Poudre Valley Medical Fitness to be held Feb. 12
A groundbreaking ceremony for the first-of-its-kind, state-of-the-art medical fitness center in northern Colorado will be held Feb. 12 at Marina Health Campus, which is under construction in Water Valley, a premier resort-lifestyle residential community in Windsor.

The ceremony for the Poudre Valley Medical Fitness center will be from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. about 100 yards north of the construction site.

At 18,727 square feet, Poudre Valley Medical Fitness, owned and operated by Poudre Valley Health System, will be the major anchor tenant in the 66,392-square-foot Marina Health Campus, under development by Water Valley Land Company and Dohn Construction. The Marina Health Campus will be the location for physician offices, physical fitness providers and other healthcare services.

Rulon Stacey, PVHS president and CEO, said Poudre Valley Medical Fitness will continue the health system’s tradition of high quality, innovative health care. “We’ll offer a continuum of care—from prevention to diagnosis and from treatment to rehabilitation—in Water Valley’s beautiful setting,” he said.

Martin Lind, president of Water Valley Land Company, said he applauds PVHS for its commitment to foster health and wellness in Water Valley, Windsor and the region.

“PVHS is bringing health, fitness and general well-being to an entirely new level of understanding with its facility in Water Valley,” Lind said. “The health system’s commitment is similar to ours: The pursuit of health and happiness is alive and well in Water Valley.”

Poudre Valley Medical Fitness will be a medically supervised health and fitness center, housing such PVHS services as pulmonary rehabilitation, physical therapy, cardiac rehabilitation, wellness services, and radiology services.

The center will offer personal training, warm-water therapy pool, lap pool, steam room, group exercise classes, computerized fitness tracking, free weights, aerobics, cardio equipment, child care, and wellness and lifestyle classes provided by such PVHS services as the Aspen Club, an organization for older citizens.

The center will be available to PVHS patients and members of the public who purchase memberships.

Stacey said the center will vary widely from the traditional public concept of such commercial health operations as health clubs and gyms. Those typically do not offer medical supervision or have an overriding medical focus on prevention and treatment.

“Poudre Valley Medical Fitness will be much more than a health club or a gym,” Stacey said. “It will be a medically supervised center that focuses on prevention and treatment of diseases, illnesses and injuries through regular participation in physical activity, disease management and health education.”

The Marina Health Campus will be constructed as a “green” building with environmentally sensitive features that will allow it to be submitted for LEED certified rating through the United States Green Building Council.
