"We have been certified since 2011 and now completed our third re-certification. This was a daunting task to do during COVID and our team did an excellent job in preparing for the site visit. Galter LifeCenter is dedicated to being a leader in medical fitness and ensuring our community has the highest quality facility, staff, and programs to live their healthiest life."  -Francie Habash, Galter LifeCenter Program Director

The Medical Fitness Association’s Facility Certification is the first and only certification offered specifically to facilities in the medical fitness industry—an industry that serves over four million members worldwide. Based on the Association’s internationally recognized Standards and Guidelines for Medical Fitness Facilities, the certification process involves an in-depth, on-site review of a facility’s adherence to a set of prescribed standards and guidelines. The certification process is an integral part of ensuring that facilities provide a high level of quality and safety in the programs and services they deliver in order for them to become fully integrated into the local continuum of healthcare. The Medical Fitness Association Facility Certification is recognized as a mark of excellence in the health and wellness industry.

“As the incidence of chronic disease continues to rise, the need for medical fitness facilities to offer a high standard of programming for the communities they serve is more important than ever,” said David Flench, FACHE, FMFA, President and CEO of the Medical Fitness Association. “Studies have shown that when people maintain an active lifestyle, especially in a safe environment, they reduce the risk of illness down the road. Galter LifeCenter has taken an important step in providing this extraordinary level of care.”
