New Jersey Welcomes Jefferson Home Care
and the Jefferson Health Care Center

Jefferson Health New Jersey is proud to
welcome Jefferson Home Care and the
Jefferson Health Care Center to its family of
services offered to South Jersey residents.

As part of its September 2017 merger with
Jefferson Health in Philadelphia, Kennedy’s
Voorhees, NJ-based Home Health Care
services and Sewell, NJ-based long-term
care facility (Kennedy Health Care Center) will
operate under the prestigious Jefferson name
beginning January 2018.

Both services – now called Jefferson
Home Care and the Jefferson Health Care
Center, respectively – will still feature the
same familiar staff and high-quality care our
patients expect from us, but as part of the
Jefferson family, our patients will now have
access to advanced Jefferson programs and
services previously unavailable in New Jersey.

Kennedy Fitness & Wellness Difference

Maximize Your Results and
Stay Motivated

For a fitness center to be successful, its members
must be successful! Personalized goal setting, monthly
progress monitoring by professionals, and free monthly
reprogramming – changing workout routines – by
nationally certified personal trainers are all vital to
maximizing results and staying motivated. Progress stops
without a change in your workout routine. Changing
regularly (called muscle confusion) requires a diversity of
equipment. You can get all of that and more at Kennedy
Fitness & Wellness. To find a fitness center with five
different equipment lines is extremely rare. Kennedy
Fitness & Wellness offers 12!

Similarly, the more classes offered, the more satisfied
members are. Classes, like Functional Training, Yoga,
Spin, Zumba, Pound, Tabaticise, Boxing, Cage Classes,
are just a few of the many we offer! Cleanliness is also
essential to us, as well as making sure our gyms aren’t
overcrowded so you can enjoy your workout. For
fitness that will keep you engaged, healthy and happy,
