LECOM Fitness & Wellness Center Receives National Exposure

The John M. & Silvia Ferretti Medical Fitness and Wellness Center at the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine is prominently featured in a full-color, two-page article in the June 2010 issue of Athletic Business magazine. The LECOM Fitness and Wellness Center is one of 87 sports fitness and recreation facilities included in Athletic Business’ 23rd Annual Architectural Showcase.

The 2010 Architectural Showcase highlights athletic facilities built or renovated in the past three years. The wellness center, which opened in March 2009, is among five college and university athletic facilities listed in the magazine.

The facility is a three-story, 110,000 square foot building which features a state-of-the-art fitness center, three swimming pools, and spa services in conjunction with medical offices and physical therapy services. “The design effectively integrates each wellness amenity while maintaining the identity of the individual spaces,” according to the Architectural Showcase. It goes on to say the wellness center’s “clean, bold, contemporary geometry emphasizes a new direction in health and wellness facilities.”           

All of the fitness and recreation facilities featured in the magazine will be judged this summer by a panel of sports, recreation, and fitness facility architects. Ten winners will be announced in the December 2010 issue of Athletic Business magazine.

The Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine and LECOM School of Pharmacy offer innovative and affordable education in osteopathic medicine and pharmacy. From campuses in Erie, Pennsylvania, Greensburg, Pennsylvania and Bradenton, Florida, LECOM provides student-centered pathways to prepare the next generation of healthcare professionals. Prepare yourself for medicine as your life’s profession.
