First Wellness Corner in Orange County devoted exclusively to muscular,
joint and spinal health
(July 31, 2017, Irvine, Calif.) – Changing the way people access
care outside hospital walls by serving them in the places they live, work
– and now, exercise – St. Joseph Hoag Health is opening a
new Wellness Corner inside LA Fitness Irvine-Crossroads on July 31, 2017.
The 1,000-square-foot facility is the first Wellness Corner in Orange County
focused on muscular, joint and spinal health. This unique site offers
natural, non-invasive therapies in one convenient location inside LA Fitness
– including acupuncture, chiropractic care, physical therapy, bodywork
and more – to promote healing, prevent injury and accelerate recovery.
“Spinal and muscular health is central to your well-being. Using
natural methods, we can help rebalance, restore and revitalize your body
to better health,” said Jan Carlo Zegarra, DC, lead physical medicine
provider for Wellness Corner at LA Fitness-Crossroads. “Partnering
with our patients and their primary care teams, our providers will work
together to achieve a common goal of optimal health and healing.”
Dr. Zegarra is an expert in sports rehabilitation and performance, and
has extensive experience with athletes including professionals in the
NFL, NHL, MLB and UFC. Wellness Corner at LA Fitness-Crossroads is open
to anyone in the community seeking to move and feel their best, with emphasis
on helping athletes and weekend warriors achieve long-term performance
goals and remain injury-free.
St. Joseph Hoag Health is committed to improving the health of our communities
with a focus on convenience and prevention.
“Bringing health care to the places that are most accessible influences
healthy behaviors, resulting in a healthier population,” said Annette
Buckel, vice president of wellness with St. Joseph Hoag Health. “Wellness
Corners are a great example of population health solutions because they
have helped our customers live a healthier lifestyle, including reductions
in inactivity, obesity and stress. Adding physical medicine to our continuum
of care makes available even more preventive services for the Orange County
community. This has proven effective in optimizing health at our employer-based
sites, and we are excited to introduce new services at Wellness Corner
at LA Fitness-Crossroads.”
This opening of this Wellness Corner reinforces local health innovation
by bringing together two major health leaders headquartered in Irvine, Calif.
“At LA Fitness, we know that muscular, joint and spinal health and
balance can be critical components of enjoying and maximizing the benefits
of the many options of physical activity we offer in our clubs. Locating
services within an LA Fitness club that focus on the wellbeing of these
components, especially when provided by other high-quality Orange County
wellness institutions such as St. Joseph Hoag Health, is a natural fit
for all of us. We look forward to being part of this alignment,”
said Bill Horner Sr., vice president and chief real estate officer with
A grand opening celebration is scheduled Monday, July 31 with presentations
by St. Joseph Hoag Health providers 7-11 a.m. and 4-8 p.m. at the Wellness
Corner at LA Fitness Irvine-Crossroads, 3960 Barranca Parkway.
