The BMC Health & Wellness Center that has been under construction on the Bibb Medical Center campus for the past few months is getting closer to a planned May 2, 2022 opening date according to facility Director Jami Parnell.


The 28,000 Sq. Ft. facility will open this spring and offer a full range of services and amenities to citizens ranging in age from children to seniors. The complex will offer attractively priced membership plans for singles, families, and seniors.



One of the most attractive features for young adult families to attract their participation in fitness programs is the availability of child care while parents are exercising, included as part of the membership plan and included in the membership package.


The competition style gymnasium features a high-tech floating floor. The gym space will be available for free style play, organized leagues, group dance instruction and group therapy sessions. Men and Women’s shower rooms feature available locker space.


Adjoining the gymnasium are two large classrooms with garage style doors that open to the outdoors.


The heated therapeutic pool will get a lot of attention. The 3 ft 9” deep grouted tile pool can be used for exercise classes, range of motion therapy, aqua aerobics, or for lap swimming. Children will be able to access the pool when accompanied by parents or adults.

The center of the building encompasses a large open fitness area for group events. The north end will contain a community event space, an administrative or community conference room, and offer wellness services.


Also featured in the building will be an outpatient physical therapy provider and a child play care center staffed with child care professionals. Restore Physical Therapy will provide on site physical, speech, and occupational therapy services.

The scheduled opening date for the facility is May 2, 2022. Memberships are now available through the BMC online portal. Hours of operation and membership pricing are also available on this page.
