Your Partner in Wellness & Fitness

The Company

Healthplex® Associates, Incorporated, was originally created as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Crozer Keystone Health System with corporate headquarters located in Springfield, Pennsylvania (suburban Philadelphia). Originally formed to own and operate CKHS's Springfield facility, it grew substantially since its 1996 origination. In March, 2005, Healthplex Associates became a privately-held corporation.

The Company now consults with hospitals and health systems across the United States to create clinically integrated fitness facilities.  Healthplex Associates has developed a unique program to smooth the transition from the clinical setting to the wellness center for people who need long term life style management support for optimal health.  HPA has achieved national leadership through innovation and our dedication to patients and clients first.


Company History

While Healthplex Associates was originally formed to develop, own and operate the Healthplex Sports Club in Springfield, it has quickly grown to include consulting, development, turn-around and management services to other hospitals and health care systems. Having gathered together a world class staff of healthcare and fitness experts to operate the Healthplex Sports Club, the company had amassed resources which could be used to assist others. By 1996, many healthcare systems and hospitals had begun to request information and assistance in developing their own medically based fitness centers for their communities. Our combined staff has now served over 300 clients ranging from large hospitals to smaller, community based rural hospitals. We work exclusively with health systems and hospitals committed to a vision of integrated healthcare delivery.

 

Given this record of successful growth, in early 2005 the company recognized that as a wholly owned subsidiary of a locally oriented, not-for-profit healthcare system, it had reached a point where it had “outgrown” its parent. Therefore, with the support and assistance of CKHS, the company was sold to a group of experienced healthcare investors who could not only provide the capital it needed for expansion but would bring additional expertise as well as a more national focus to the business.


Client Relations

Healthplex Associates has developed a unique, hands-on approach to assisting and advising healthcare systems and hospitals with an approach that stresses partnerships. Fundamentally, we believe that true community health must include fitness/wellness services and because of our deep healthcare background (all of our principals have health care management and clinical backgrounds), the Healthplex team fully understands the client's mission and complexity of today's healthcare environment. Healthplex Associates sees its strengths as:

 

  • A hands-on orientation which is dedicated to client service; fulfilling local needs is our mission.

  • A partnership approach. We seek excellence for our partners and our projects and we consider ourselves part of our partner's management staff. We recognize that our hospital partners are always balancing several major projects at a time. They need a partner who can get the job done.

  • We see every situation as unique. Each project will help shape the hospital/health system's future health care delivery model and there are no "cookie cutter" for individual projects.

  • Because of our not for profit health care roots, we approach each project conservatively. We understand how precious resources are in today's healthcare environment and we act as if our own money and resources are at stake.

  • We understand healthcare. Our senior staff members are all experienced healthcare executives or clinicians. Our first priority is healthcare.

The management team of Healthplex Associates is made up of some of the nation's most experienced experts in the field of medically based fitness. Few management firms can boast of the experience in health care, clinical services and operations of medically based fitness centers that Healthplex Associates possesses.
