With support from the LiVe Well Center at Dixie Regional Medical Center, Trudy Donnell is stronger and more active than she has been in years.

Embracing health and wellness at LiVe Well Centers

“I credit this class with making me stronger and helping me feel better. Even my brain seems to work better. I feel sharper mentally.” —Trudy Donnell.

At the age of 90, many people struggle to be active. But not Trudy Donnell. As a participant in physical fitness classes at Intermountain Healthcare’s LiVe Well Center at Dixie Regional Medical Center, Trudy has become stronger and more active than she’s been in years. Her classes focus on redeveloping strength and balance, two key abilities that wane as we age.

Trudy now uses a cane far less often. She enjoys more quality time with her husband, John, who is also a participant and still bikes at age 93. In her words, “I credit this class with making me stronger and helping me feel better. Even my brain seems to work better. I feel sharper mentally.”

In addition to wellness classes and programs at each of our 22 hospitals, Intermountain now has three LiVe Well Centers in Utah, with plans to add more. These centers are focused on keeping people healthy. Services include healthy lifestyle assessments, wellness services, sports performance training, and other classes and events. LiVe Well Centers represent an approach to medicine focused on improving health and well-being—not just treating the ill.
