SOUTH BEND Representatives from the South Bend Health Clinic gave an update on their progress to the South Bend Community School Corporation on Monday night.
The Health and Wellness Center is located at 611 Lincoln Way E in South Bend, and renovations are currently underway.
The clinic is scheduled to open August, and an open house will be available for all in mid-September.
The goal of the clinic is to help members involved in the school corporation and save money on medical expenses.
“Wellness in general needs to be addressed, and we a very large employee base,” Executive Director of Human Resources Curt Novotny says. “If we can get any of those people on board to have their nutrition and their exercise and their wellness program monitored, they're more likely to be more productive, healthier, happier and less cost going to our healthcare."
The Health and Wellness Center will be open five days per week, variably from 6a.m. to 7p.m.
