Mount Carmel Lewis Center, which opened to the public in January 2016, is a comprehensive, state-of-the-art ambulatory care center that offers high-quality outpatient care, medical fitness, wellness education, and rehabilitation services to the residents of Delaware County. Located in Ohio’s fastest-growing and most affluent county, the facility provides a venue for patients and the community to pursue healthier lifestyles and manage chronic health problems.
The medical fitness center is the facility’s largest component in both size and programmatic scope, providing medically integrated programming and oversight for a wide variety of individuals who feel that commercial fitness centers cannot accommodate their unique healthcare needs. A feasibility study of the medical fitness center, conducted using a 12-minute drive time service area, reported the following:
- Population of 122,700
- Average household income of $120,931
- Projected annual member visits of 470,000
