Bayhealth is pleased to announce the forming of a collaboration with the Dover YMCA. This collaboration will allow Bayhealth to provide comprehensive and expanded employee, community and family fitness programming to the greater Dover community.
At the YMCA, Lifestyles’ members will benefit from expanded services and activities designed to improve the health and wellness of the community. The YMCA offers a much larger fitness center with not one, but two indoor pools, an outside pool located in west Dover and a new gymnasium. The YMCA also provides a wide range of family health and wellness activities including a large roster of fitness classes, personal training, swimming and sports programs. Membership in the Dover YMCA gives members access to Y’s across the country.
“With our missions squarely aligned, we look forward to working with Bayhealth to continue to help the families and individuals of Dover improve their health and fitness,” said Deborah Bagatta-Bowles, Chief Executive Officer, YMCA of Delaware. “Having recently expanded our Dover facility in 2013 with a new gym and additional fitness space, the Y is poised to provide not only additional fitness but more family focused programs.”
Bayhealth will cease operations at its Lifestyles Fitness Center in Dover on Saturday, November 16, 2013.
YMCA member services staff will be available at the Lifestyles Fitness Center in Dover to discuss the opportunities and benefits for current Lifestyles members who transfer membership to the YMCA. Existing Lifestyles’ members will be able to become a member of the Dover YMCA with no joiner fee.
“We are proud of the services that our Lifestyles in Dover has provided to our patients, employees and the community for over 25 years and look forward to the new opportunities our relationship with the YMCA will bring to our Bayhealth community,” said Terry M. Murphy, FACHE, Bayhealth President and Chief Executive Officer.
Bayhealth’s Lifestyles Fitness Center in Milford will continue to provide services on the campus of Milford Memorial Hospital.
