- An on-site physical therapy clinic run by Edward-Elmhurst Health
- Opportunities for health education and screenings
- Shared wellness, nutrition, weight management, and senior wellness offerings
- Expanded healthcare offerings for the Plainfield area
“We want to keep our communities healthy in every way possible, and this exciting partnership with the C.W.
