WellAdvantage Health Center

"My advice to someone starting on a wellness journey is even though you have an "oops" during a meal, don't let it ruin your day. Get back on track with your next meal or snack." Jennifer Pedginski 



Q: Why are we being provided with healthcare services?
We know that part of having a good life is having good health. The WellAdvantage Health Center and its staff will help you achieve your optimum health and wellbeing while also helping the City of Chattanooga limit the impact of inflationary healthcare costs.
