Sheetz wellness center to be first-in-county LEED certified

Claysburg, Pa. -- C-store chain Sheetz said Tuesday that it will open its new employee health-and-wellness center on Wednesday, marking the first LEED-certified building in Blair County.

The 11,000-sq.-ft. Sheetz Center for Shwellness is located beside the Sheetz Distribution Center in Claysburg, Pa. In partnership with Marathon-Health, the company will use medical staff to provide individual health and wellness coaching to employees and their eligible dependents.

Sheetz designed the Center for Shwellness to be more than an exercise facility. In addition to the state-of-the-art fitness center that includes a full line of cardio and strength equipment, a quarter-mile outdoor track and a group exercise room, employees will also have the option of participating in healthy living, disease management and lifestyle classes in the learning center. Several different types of health screenings will also be available at the Center, in addition to treatment for acute care and chronic conditions.
