Hannaford opens community wellness center

ALBANY, N.Y. — Hannaford Supermarkets has teamed up with Capital District YMCA and CDPHP to open the Healthy Living Center, a community-centered wellness facility that offers a holistic approach to health and wellness, as well as assistance with health insurance needs.

The Healthy Living Center is located inside Hannaford Supermarkets in Albany. The concept of partnering with other entities to create and operate a wellness center focused on the needs of a particular community is a first on the national level for each of the organizations.

The 5,277-square-foot Healthy Living Center, which opened in early October, offers the community a variety of programs that support healthy living and wellness in the community, such as group exercise classes, weight management classes, nutrition seminars, personal training and senior fitness classes, as well as programs that address specific health needs, such as the Pedaling for Parkinson’s and diabetes prevention programs. Fees may apply for some offerings.

“Hannaford is deeply committed to addressing the health and wellness needs of the communities in which we live and operate. The Healthy Living Center will provide a critical service to individuals and families throughout the Capital Region,” stated Rudy DiPietro, VP retail operations for Hannaford Supermarkets. “We look forward to welcoming our shoppers to this pioneering facility which will undoubtedly serve as a new model for community health services.”

Member services representatives from CDPHP are available daily to answer questions regarding health and insurance needs, and are also available to help people understand their Medicare and New York State Health Exchange options.
