On Friday, Oct. 29, Executive Vice President Shannon Cullinan and Provost Marie Lynn Miranda announced the expansion of the Notre Dame Wellness Center. Below is the content of the letter:
We take seriously our commitment to providing an exemplary work environment. One way we do this is by caring for the physical and emotional health of you and your families. The Notre Dame Wellness Center is central to our efforts in this area, serving more than 10,000 faculty, staff, and dependents since opening in 2012.
We are pleased to announce that the University will break ground on a larger health and wellness center this fall in response to the high utilization rates and our desire to continually improve the care we provide. The existing facility will expand into the areas directly north and south of the current footprint.
The newly expanded center will continue to offer personalized medical care, an onsite pharmacy, physical therapy services, and a pediatric staff dedicated to caring for our employees’ children. The expansion will, in part, accommodate the significant growth in demand for emotional well-being services and provide more space for behavioral health providers. It will also allow us to expand offerings in the areas of physical therapy, pharmacy, and occupational health. The center will continue to be operated and staffed by Premise Health.
Completion of the expansion is expected by the summer of 2022. We anticipate minimal disruptions to current services during the construction period. Thank you for your steadfast commitment to advancing our mission, and we look forward to offering an enhanced health and wellness center to you and your families.
