Harrison Partners with YMCA - 1/9/2010

Silverdale, WA—Harrison Medical Center and the YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties have partnered to enhance health and wellness opportunities for families in Kitsap County.

“Harrison Medical Center has provided essential healthcare in Kitsap County and surrounding communities for more than 90 years,” says President and CEO Scott Bosch. “Our new partnership with YMCA will allow us the unique opportunity to expand the wellness component of our services.”

Harrison will lease 3,000 square feet at the new Haselwood Family YMCA in Silverdale—set to open in summer 2011—with plans to offer education and a variety of other services to support healthy, active lifestyles.

“The YMCA is thrilled to partner with Harrison Medical Center to offer a complete range of health and wellness services to the residents of Kitsap County,” says YMCA president and CEO Bob Ecklund. “Harrison is a well-respected non-profit agency that fits well with the mission of the YMCA to provide health in spirit, mind and body for all.”

This partnership is modeled after a successful venture between the YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties and MultiCare Health System created in 2005.
