Why is Lourdes Wellness Services closing?
Given the competitive nature of the health care industry, made ever-more complex by the COVID-19 pandemic, Virtua is no longer offer able to offer these services. The financial burden and societal impact of COVID-19 has made us re-focus Virtua’s community health initiatives. Our strategic priority is centered on Food Access and, as a result, we must consider the utilization of our resources to most effectively make an impact.
What services are impacted by the closure?
All services (except chair massage) are not re-opening. This includes therapeutic massage, acupuncture, spiritual direction, exercise classes, and private yoga sessions. Yoga and fitness classes offered through community partners, such as the Cherry Hill Health & Racquet Club and Collingswood Community Center, will also cease operations. The Bridge (youth empowerment program) is not impacted by these changes. Plans for The Canticle of the Creatures Meditation Garden are undecided at this time.
