An announcement regarding the future of the Bond Wellness Center is expected on July 1, Monadnock Community Hospital spokesperson Laura Gingras said on Wednesday.

“At this time, no decision has been made about restoring the Bond Wellness Center’s fitness membership programming,” she wrote in a statement. The  hospital’s Board of Trustees are evaluating the wellness center’s best use moving forward, she said, in light of the financial pressures the COVID-19 pandemic put on all hospitals.

The Wellness Center closed at the start of the pandemic to protect patients, employees, and the community from COVID-19. Currently, the facility’s fitness floor and pools are being used for physical therapy and cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs, Gingras said.

“We are evaluating the potential reintroduction of certain medically based programs,” she said.

The Bond Wellness Center opened in November of 2000 and offered personal training, rehabilitation services, massage therapy and nutrition counseling. Last June, when gyms across the state were allowed to reopen after closing for months under emergency orders, the facility remained closed since there was no way to ensure member safety, according to a statement provided to the Ledger-Transcript at the time.
