New Wellness Center Coming To East Texas

A brand new multi-million dollar Wellness Center is headed for East Texas.  

Wednesday, officials with Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview planted a tree on site of their new 17-million dollar Institute for Healthy Living.  The wellness center will focus on rehabilitation after surgery and physical therapy. The facility will also have a fitness center for anyone to join.

"I think we need a healthier community, Texas ranks one of the lowest, East Texas has some of the highest in strokes and heart attacks, etc.  We can have healthier community, the data supports we need to have healthier community and commit to it," said President and CEO Jerry Adair.

The Institute for Healthy Living is expected to open late next summer.
