ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- There's a new place in town to help us live a healthy life.
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Wednesday for SwedishAmerican's new wellness center inside the Rockford YMCA. The BetterLife Wellness is open to both Y members and the public.
SwedishAmerican Executive Vice President Don Daniels says the center offers a variety of services including; health screens, weight management services, flu shots and even classes to quit smoking.
"This is another investment made by SwedishAmerican to give community members another option and some different ways of improving their health that are beyond the traditional advice of exercise more and eat less," Daniels said.
SwedishAmerican and the YMCA first joined forces in 2007 opening a Sports Therapy Center in Loves Park.
