A wellness center has long been a goal of the staff of South Gilliam Health Center and the South Gilliam County Health District. We struggled to fund a large, all-encompassing facility. In March of 2014, the staff decided that while a larger facility may be the best option for our patients, the community had an immediate need for a wellness facility. With this need as our driving force, we determined that building a wellness center onto the clinic was the best option. We knew the facility should be a place where people could participate in individual or group fitness classes, a place to reach physical health goals, and a place for patients to go to continue physical therapy.
