The Morris Community YMCA and Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers announced in December 2014 the formation of a partnership to enhance the health and wellness of Grundy County residents. Under this multi-year plan, the YMCA and Morris Hospital are working together to develop programs and services at the new temporary Morris Community YMCA location in downtown Morris, which opened to the public in January 2015.
Located in the former City Hall building at 320 Wauponsee Street in downtown Morris, the Morris Community YMCA in partnership with Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers provides Grundy County residents with access to unparalleled health and wellness programs. The newly renovated 7,500-square-foot facility is serving as a temporary home for the Y and features state-of-the-art fitness and strength-training equipment, multi-purpose rooms, locker rooms and dedicated community space. The Y and Morris Hospital are collaborating to offer a wide variety of programming in the facility, including group exercise classes, youth enrichment and teen programs, senior wellness programs, child watch services, and a number of medically-based fitness programs and community wellness initiatives.
