Private Gym for Methodist Hospital Staff & Family
The Methodist Hospital Employees Accomplishing Long Term Health (H.E.A.L.T.H.)
Club is a voluntary exercise opportunity for eligible members. The H.E.A.L.T.H.
Club is intended to provide quality exercise programs and services for
full-time and part-time Employees, Retirees, Volunteers, Physicians, Hospital
Board Members and Spouses. All memberships must be maintained in compliance
with established criteria and with Methodist Hospital H.E.A.L.T.H. Club
Policy and Procedure.
There are no membership fees; the facility is a benefit provided at no
cost to its members by Methodist Hospital. Each participant must complete
a simple initiation and an equipment orientation prior to membership being granted.
H.E.A.L.T.H. Club Access
A Hospital issued badge is required to enter via the electronic card reader
system. If you lose your badge or it becomes demagnetized you may contact
Human Resources at 827-7540 or Security at 827-7518 for assistance.
The member will use the card-swipe into the H.E.A.L.T.H. Club at each visit.
No member should allow someone to enter the facility with his or her personal
card-swipe. Violation of this policy will result in revocation of Club
Membership rights for a period of one year.
Hours of Operation
The H.E.A.L.T.H. Club is open for use 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
For Your Safety
The H.E.A.L.T.H. Club has one phone in the exercise area for in-house and
local calls only. For the safety of everyone, members are not to allow
anyone who has not been granted membership into the facility.
Methodist Hospital strongly encourages all members working out (other than
participating in an organized program offered by the H.E.A.L.T.H. Club)
to use the "buddy system" for their own safety.
Good judgement should be used when entering and leaving the facility during
early morning or late night hours.
Worker's Compensation does not cover any injury that may be sustained
while participating in a voluntary participation exercise program.
Peak Usage Courtesy Request
All members who are not on duty that day are asked to remain focused when
exercise equipment is in demand and to give priority during the peak usage
period to employees who may be going on duty or who are using the H.E.A.L.T.H.
Club on their lunch breaks (usually 5:30 a.m. - 7:30 a.m. & 11:00
a.m. - 12:30 p.m.).
As a courtesy "non-working" members are asked to allow the "working"
members priority on all exercise equipment and the showers during these
time frames or any other time equipment and shower usage is at peak levels.
The satisfaction of every Member is very important. Please direct your
questions or comments to Travis McDonald at 830-4691 and/or the Employee
Health Services at 827-7174.
Day lockers are available for member's personal belongings. Members
may lock their lockers during the time they are using the H.E.A.L.T.H.
Club, but due to the small number of lockers, locks must be removed and
the locker emptied of belongings when the member exits the H.E.A.L.T.H.
Club. Any lock left on a locker will be removed by Maintenance and the
contents of the locker will be given to Security as "lost property".
Any personal property left after you exit the building may be considered
lost property and may be disposed of as deemed appropriate.
Methodist Hospital is not responsible for any personal property that may
be left on the premises.
Paper Towels are provided for care of equipment. Perspiration is corrosive
to vinyl and metal parts of the equipment. A bottle of disinfectant is
provided for the purpose of cleaning the equipment after use.
Please sanitize and dry equipment after each use. Members should provide
their own personal towels for showers.
Smoking is not permitted in the H.E.A.L.T.H. Club.
