The Greene County Memorial Hospital Foundation is pleased to be able to bring the EQT REC Center to Greene County. The 60,000 square foot EQT REC (Recreation/Education/Community) Center will house an indoor soccer field, basketball courts, multipurpose rooms, a 7,000 square foot fitness area and an elevated walking/jogging track. In addition, it will have a conference room, concession area, small daycare room and party rooms that will all be available to the public. The focus will go beyond exercise and fitness to encompass total wellness and recreation by offering a multitude of programming designed to increase educational and social opportunities for people of all ages.
The new center is named in recognition of EQT Corp., the project’s naming sponsor.
The primary goals of the Recreation Center are to:
- Increase exercise and physical fitness opportunities for residents by providing facilities and equipment not currently available in Greene County
- Offer a variety of educational and fitness programming focused on health and wellness
- Provide recreational activities for all age groups on a regular basis
- Make available to the public meeting and party rooms to be used by interested groups and individuals in need of additional facilities
Construction is underway and plans are to open the facility by late fall of 2017.
Anyone wishing to make a charitable donation to go towards the construction can do so by calling the Foundation at 724-852-2060.
