Programs are approved by a medical advisory committee made up of local physicians from a variety of disciplines. From strategic health planning to coordinated care management and personalized fitness plans, the HLC provides services for almost everyone. Whether an individual is undergoing treatment or recovering from an illness or injury, or is striving to improve his or her sports performance, the HLC staff and medical partners are here to provide assistance and support through a wide array of programs and services.
