AAMC and Abbeville YMCA Form Partnership

AAMC to lease Wellness area facilities to Abbeville YMCA effective March 1st

AAMC and the Abbeville YMCA announced today that they have signed a partnership agreement that will allow the YMCA to lease the hospital’s Wellness Center effective March 1st. AAMC’s patient rehabilitation services will continue to be housed in the area adjacent to the Wellness area and will not be affected.

The multi-year agreement will allow the Abbeville YMCA and hospital to provide additional health and wellness programming to the community. Facility hours will be expanded to 6:00am – 7:00pm Monday through Friday and members will have access to all Lakelands YMCA facilities.

YMCA personnel will be on-site to assist current AAMC Wellness Center members to move memberships to the Abbeville YMCA beginning February 1st. Existing membership fees will remain in place through the end of 2022.

“This collaboration will help AAMC further meet its mission to provide quality healthcare and inspire healthy living,” stated Cindy Buck, AAMC Interim CEO. “We are excited to have the opportunity to connect both our patients and community with more programs and services that will have a real and lasting positive impact on our area’s health and wellness.”

“We are very excited to partner with Abbeville Area Medical Center to expand the Y’s programs and services to the Abbeville community,” stated Brian Harlan, CEO, Lakelands Region YMCA. “By leveraging our combined resources, expertise and passion, we can truly move the needle on diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and so many other preventable conditions.”

“The benefits of being a member of the Abbeville YMCA will only grow as collaborative programming is created and offerings expanded to meet the existing and future needs of the Abbeville community,” stated Johnathan Bass, Lakelands Region YMCA VP of Advancement. “I’m excited by the opportunities that will develop as a result of a partnership between two mission based organizations.”
