Mercy Fitness Center - Walnut Lawn

As of March 31, 2015, Mercy Fitness Center will close.

When we first opened our doors in the early 1980s, our community had very few fitness options and Mercy’s center helped fill that need. While Mercy still feels strongly that exercise is key to good health, these days there are many options and very few of our patients are utilizing our fitness center. Mercy has subsidized its operation for years and every effort has been made to keep the doors open. However, we feel we now must focus our funds on providing direct patient care.

It is our sincere desire that you continue your healthy habits, so we’ve secured other membership options with the Ozarks Regional YMCA and Springfield
-Greene County Park Board:

  • The YMCA invites you to check out its two centers for free during the month of March. Both locations include an aquatics program. If you join by April 30, the YMCA will waive the initiation fee and match your current membership rate for a year.
  • The Springfield-Greene County Park Board offers three family centers and two indoor aquatics centers. Adult memberships are $32, family memberships are $49.50 and seniors are $21.50.

Representatives from both organizations will be coming to Mercy Fitness Center to present information about their facilities; in addition, you can find pamphlets and other details at the front desk.

For Mercy members who have pre-paid for your annual membership, paid extra for School of Strength classes, or paid an initiation fee within the last 12 months, rest assured that those fees will be prorated and you will get a refund. You can also cancel your membership at any time. Please visit the front desk if you have any questions.

For members who are also Mercy co-workers, we are developing a comprehensive fitness and wellness solution for you and your family. We’ll have more details for you very soon.

Thank you for your loyalty and support over the years; please understand this has been a difficult decision that we have made after much consideration and due diligence.
