Magee Rehabilitation Hospital--a world renowned physical and cognitive rehabilitation hospital in Philadelphia--is hosting an Open House November 17 from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm to celebrate the opening of their new Health&Wellness Center, located at Magee's outpatient facility at 1500 South Columbus Blvd.

The Open House will feature food, prizes, massages, and a seminar by Philadelphia Attorney Joseph Romano featuring practical advice on the types of funding and legal issues faced by those with Spinal Cord Injury or Traumatic Brain Injury. The seminar will take place from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm.

Magee's new Health&Wellness Center will provide opportunities for disabled and able-bodied members of the community to use exercise equipment join yoga or pilates groups, and learn about healthy eating and healthy living practices through classes and workshops together. Membership fees for the Health&Wellness Center will start at $50.00 a month.

"We're very proud of the new Health&Wellness Center," said Rose Battiato, Magee's Director of Outpatient Development and Programs. "Not just in regards to the physical facility, which includes the latest equipment paired with the expertise of our therapists, but with its mission to bring the able and disabled together. We have many patients who are brought to our outpatient facilities for exercise and therapy by a parent, a spouse, or caregiver who go elsewhere for their own health and fitness needs. Now, they can get healthy together at one convenient place."
