Virtua's William G. Rohrer Center for HealthFitness
in Voorhees is already known for its team of trainers, full-service fitness center and physical therapy services.

"An achievement such as this only occurs as a result of the outstanding efforts of everyone on the team," said Paula Konstantinides
, director of the Rohrer Center. "I am proud of everyone's contribution, both today and throughout the nine years that the center has been open."
The Rohrer Center is a comprehensive fitness center that offers full memberships, as well as massage therapists, a physical therapy center, and physician offices along with a cardiac rehabilitation center.
"Virtua is committed to providing the community with wellness programs that maintain and improve health," said Richard P. Miller
, Virtua President and CEO. "Our team of highly skilled fitness professionals earned this certification through their dedication to health and wellness. We are very proud of this achievement."
The MFA is dedicated solely to medically integrated fitness facilities. As a resource to the medical fitness industry, MFA is focused on medical fitness, and is the first association to have focused on hospital fitness and wellness.
"The MFA seal of approval assures consumers the facility has met the highest quality standards," said MFA Board Chair Brad A. Roy, Ph.D., FACSM, FACHE
