OhioHealth Neuroscience Wellness Center
Empowering a community to build strength for life
We believe exceptional neuroscience care extends beyond clinical treatment. It happens when people living with neurologic conditions have the resources they need to incorporate wellness into their daily lives.
That’s what the OhioHealth Neuroscience Wellness Center will offer our community – a destination like no other in the nation with programs that will empower neuroscience patients and their caregivers to build strength and health through exercise, education and support.
We design customized programs to keep you active and well throughout your life, like our OhioHealth Delay the DiseaseTM exercise program for people living with Parkinson’s disease and yoga classes for those with neurologic disorders.
Inspiring wellness through design
The Neuroscience Wellness Center will be located on the OhioHealth McConnell Campus, made possible by many generous donors, including John P. McConnell, who committed $6 million to this initiative. Set back in a wooded area, this serene location will create the ideal environment to focus and motivate our members.
Every detail of the facility was built around our members’ physical and cognitive needs. The building was specifically designed to harness the tranquility of the surrounding woods and bring the outdoors in by featuring floor-to-ceiling glass windows, a courtyard in the center and studios that open to outdoor decks. The design also features a glass-enclosed walking bridge that symbolizes one of the most important abilities that our members value – the ability to walk.
