"I love the Lerner Health and Wellness Center! It lives up to its name as a "wellness center" with its friendly atmosphere, outstanding staff who are actively engaged and enthusiastic in making things nice for members, and the great pool, gym and other features--it's a place to rejuvenate my body, mind and spirit. The people at Lerner are like family, there when you need them, or just to talk and laugh with. Lerner makes my favorite Latin phrase possible: mens sana in corpore sano. Thank you Lerner Health and Wellness Center--you're the greatest!!!"
