To better understand who we are , take a quick look at where we came from which reveals a long history of continuous improvement.
GHF started as a small facility located above a bank on Archer Road in the mid-1970s. Our original space was about the size of our lobby in the GHF Main location today. In 1978, we moved to the Creekside Mall and expanded to 11,000 square feet. In 1984, after realizing many women wanted a private environment, we built a center exclusively for women in Thornebrook Village. In 1986, our coed facility moved to Westgate Regency and expanded to 31,000 square feet. In 1988, after collaborating with the University College of Medicine to research ways to help people with low back pain, we opened our physical therapy center known today as ReQuest Physical Therapy. In 1996, we moved our coed center to the current Newberry Road location.
In 2007, GHF opened its third location in the Tioga Town Center. It became the second coed center in the GHF family. One membership gives you access to all three unique locations with no additional charge.
