Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital announced it will debut a new, stand-alone, Henry Mayo Fitness and Health facility designed to combine physical therapy and rehabilitation programs.
The hospital has leased the entire 53,515-square-foot former Spectrum Club site, located on Town Center Drive, and expects to open in spring of 2016.
“Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital is committed to serving our community’s health needs,” said Roger Seaver, President and CEO. “Being healthy and fit are key to our wellness efforts. This new center will allow us to extend our mission into additional preventive programs to improve health and manage chronic medical conditions.
Henry Mayo Fitness and Health will be a dynamic environment that offers all of the attributes of a state-of-the-art fitness center. Additionally, it will be combined with diagnostic and therapeutic healthcare services, and customized to patient, employer and the community.”
The fitness club side of the building will be managed by a credentialed professional staff, to include a variety of exercise amenities such as a strength training area, weight training and cardio equipment, group exercise studios, pool and locker rooms.
The clinical services and medical resources side of the building will be managed by the hospital with emphasis on rehabilitation, orthopedic services, diabetic conditions and cardiology in addition to other physician specialties.
Many community education programs will be conducted at the facility.
As a clinically integrated medical fitness and wellness center, Henry Mayo Fitness and Health will offer the Santa Clarita Valley a premier destination designed for individual and family preventive health care.
Applications for charter memberships to the Henry Mayo Fitness and Health facility will begin in late November 2015 at the site.

For those of you not residents of Santa Clarita in 2008, City Council Chambers became a battlefield over the hospital Master Plan where administrators insisted as they have done in this article, Henry Mayo Newhall “is committed to serving our community’s health needs.”
Many of us asked the question then why they closed the Transitional Care Unit (TCU) that served our elder senior as a stepping stone to going home. Also, with the influx of speciality doctors, why not build badly needed operating rooms which were lacking compared to other nearby hospitals?
They answered these questions from a business viewpoint that it wasn’t economically feasible to maintain the TCU, nor build new operating rooms. That commitment to serving community needs was not met.
Now we see the hospital venturing into the fitness arena. As a non-profit hospital, does their 501(c)3 status allow this? Aren’t they competing with other Santa Clarita gyms? Doesn’t this give them an advantage, possibly putting some out of business? Shouldn’t the City Council step forward and help to protect private businesses?
There were some questionable business practices arising in 2008 which makes me want to question their present venture. Who owns the former Spectrum Club building? Who is now contracted to build it out? And who will be handling the leasing? Maybe we should ask members of the hospital Board of Directors.
The hospital is in the midst of a fund raising campaign for their new tower. Where will the donated money go: To the tower, or to put private gyms out of business?
The only way I can support their endeavor is if they put a TCU in the building, and add some operating rooms to boot!
