HackensackUMC and the New York Giants have been at the forefront of community health for more than a decade.

According to a news release, the companies have led their industries by creating alliances and programs to help their communities stay healthy. That effort helped open a 112,000-square-foot 'HackensackUMC Fitness & Wellness Powered by the GIANTS' facility.

The Hon. Gregg A. Padovano, mayor of the Borough of Maywood, Robert C. Garrett, president and chief executive officer of Hackensack University Health Network and John Mara, president and chief executive officer of the New York Giants, officially introduced the center during a ribbon-cutting ceremony, the announcement said.

"HackensackUMC's medical expertise and the New York Giants' fitness leadership make this center unique," said Garrett. "The healthcare landscape is changing, with its focus on 'population health management,' not just treating patients when they are sick, but offering wellness programs to the community. The creation of a fitness and wellness center shows that we're delivering on that objective."

The announcement said upon opening on Dec. 30, 2013, the facility featured an expansive fitness center with pools, group classes, exercise studios and programs for people of all ages and fitness. There will be a sports performance center featuring athletic workouts, a spa, child care and a healthy café.

The center will also house a variety of health and wellness services including physical therapy, a diabetes education and management center, nutritional counseling, behavioral health services, a woman's health center offering mammography and bone density screenings as well as pain management, acupuncture and chiropractic care.

"The mission of HackensackUMC Fitness & Wellness Powered by the GIANTS is to help people of all ages and fitness levels achieve their health and wellness goals comfortably and safely," said Mara. "The facility combines medically based care with a world-class fitness club. A focus of the new center is on community outreach, combating childhood obesity and an overall push to get both adults and children more active."
