The Wellness Center will include cardiac rehab, physical therapy, sports performance, and even an aquatic center to name just a few of the many things the facility will contain.

Barber, "St. Bernards has been involved in this community for over one hundred and eleven years, now. Our mission is to provide Christ like healing to the community through education, treatment and health services."

We've talked for many years about this dream and to see it come to pass is outstanding and I certainly feel the public is going to enjoy it."
