Get Healthy Now to implement small monthly fee
As the University of Louisville navigates an extreme budget shortfall, many departments and units have come up with a variety of creative solutions to stay afloat without making staff or programmatic cuts. Get Healthy Now is no different.
Starting immediately, the wellness center will switch to a fee-based membership of $15 a month for UofL faculty and staff. Members will be able to sign up for auto withdrawal through payroll if they so wish.
To offset the fee-based membership, GHN is opening up all the activity classes, including “specialty classes” (yoga, Pilates, etc.), to wellness center participants as part of the membership package. Also, incentives – such as a lower rate for those who visit the wellness center more frequently – are currently being explored to lessen the blow of this change.
