On Monday, Jan. 20, a few of us from Community took Pete P. Peters Foundation member Mark Ruof and his wife Diane for a sneak peek at the soon-to-be-open Community Regional Fitness Center – all made possible with the help of the Pete P. Peters Foundation. We had a great time visiting the center with Medical Staff President Elect Dr. Jeffrey Thomas, Community Regional CEO Jack Chubb, COO Craig Wagoner and the Community Medical Foundation’s VP Rob Saroyan.

The equipment is in, locker room completed, and just the right music overhead to inspire all gym attendees to work out!
As we spent time looking over all the wonderful amenities our Community Family will enjoy, we were drawn to the wide open glass windows that face the early days of Community Regional – the Annex building where this campus began. It made us think of “Uncle Pete” Peters who was always looking for ways to help out the Community Family he loved so much. Pete was excited to be a part of this center that would make a difference in the health of all who spends time here for years to come.
Like the message at the center entrance states, “Balancing work and life for a healthier you” is a gift to everyone who works here. We are all looking forward to the opening on Jan. 27!
Again, kudos to Dr. Thomas and Mark Ruof of the Pete Peters Foundation for their vision and startup gift to move this terrific project forward.
