New 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.
