Fort Meade - USNA - Andrews AFB: New Wellness Center Opens at Fort Meade

New Wellness Center Opens at Fort Meade

Fort Meade MarylandNew Wellness Center Opens at Fort Meade

Members of Maryland's Congressional Delegation were on hand Monday for the opening of Fort Meade's new Wellness Center. Senators Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin and Rep. Paul Sarbanes were on the post, and missed all the drama in Washington, D.C. when the U.S. Senate was locked down after the Navy Yard shooting. The House of Representatives did not lock down, but additional security measures were taken at the U.S. Capital and other Government facilities in Washington, including Fort Meade in nearby Maryland.

The new Wellness Center, located in the former Medal of Honor Memorial Library, will serve as the hub for a variety of services that promote healthy living. It's all part of Operation Live Well, which focuses on the prevention of health care issues rather than the treatment of them.

Service members, their families, retirees, and DOD civilians are eligible for health assessment reviews, physical fitness assessments and stress management techniques, as well as nutritional assessments and tobacco addiction assistance at the new facility - one of thirteen nationwide.

Hours are Monday-Friday, 7:30 am to 4:30 pm, by appointment.  Call 301-677-2006. The Wellness Center is located in Building 4418 on Llewellyn Avenue.

Fort Meade is located less than a half hour from Crofton, which is home to many active duty and retired military and DOD civilians.

THIS IS WORTH SPENDING TAX PAYER'S MONEY ON.

It surely costs a lot more when people do not practice good health habits/diet, etc.

Hi Margaret, This sounds to be quite a place and it may become a model for the direction the people of this country need to be heading in. Healthcare in the future relies heavily on the newer generations to take better care of themselves and support healthier lifestyles than some of the older generations. The cost for neglecting good health prevention will be ever so much more costly in terms of $$ and lives saved.

Lenn, it does make sense for so many reasons.
