UH South Wellness Center

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to overwhelming demand during our first open house event, we are looking at alternative ways to register Michigan Medicine faculty and staff for a UH South Wellness Center membership. In the meantime, we are cancelling all remaining Open House events.  We value your time and want to make the registration process as fair and seamless as possible. Please stay tuned – we will post updated membership registration information to this site and through various communication channels as details are finalized.

The new UH South Wellness Center, scheduled to open in October 2017, improves access to physical activity facilities for Michigan Medicine faculty and staff and provides easy access to a variety of health and well-being programs and services. Available to members 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
