Del-Sano Announces Completion of the YMCA of Eastern Union County's Five Points Wellness Center

This Expansion Will Enable the YMCA to Provide More Comprehensive Health, Wellness and Community Service Programs

UNION, NJ--(Marketwire - Jun 1, 2011) - Del-Sano Contracting Corporation, a general contracting, design/build and construction management services firm, announced today the completion of the YMCA of Eastern Union County, Five Points Wellness Center Branch. Located within the former Union Hospital facility at 1000 Galloping Road, Union, N.J., the Five Points Wellness Center Branch enables the YMCA of Eastern Union County to offer a greater amount of comprehensive health, wellness, fitness, and community-based programs to support the overall well-being of area residents.

The former hospital remains the home of the Overlook Hospital Emergency Room and independent Outpatient Surgical Center. The new, energy-efficient, well-equipped, Five Points Wellness Center Branch, includes 20,000 square feet of space renovation previously occupied as hospital medical offices, diagnostics and exam rooms. The innovative revitalization of the space includes four multi-purpose rooms, a designated cycle studio and a state-of-the-art health and wellness center, containing over 65 pieces of weight training, circuit training and cardiovascular equipment. Within the health and wellness center lies a private Kinesis Studio, designed to support small group personal training experiences to help build balance, flexibility and strength. The Five Points Wellness Center Branch also offers safe and convenient amenities including child watch babysitting services, shower and locker rooms for men and women and the Green Leaf Grill -- an internet café serving as a social center for those longing for a healthy food snack, or revitalizing refreshments.

"This expansion will help the YMCA of Eastern Union County to fulfill its mission to empower and invigorate the body, mind and spirit of area families," said Angelo Del Russo, CEO of Del-Sano. "In such a short time, the new facility is bursting with activity and those who are fitness and wellness minded are anxious to take advantage of the programs as well as the specialty fitness equipment."

Del Russo added, "The Biber Partnership and Del-Sano Contracting have successfully created a synergy once again to achieve the successful opening of the YMCA of Eastern Union County, Five Points Wellness Center Branch. The team of Mike Petronaci, project manager and Gerard Russomano, superintendant from Del Sano and Derrick Overbay, architect project manager and Linda Patten, senior associate partner from Biber Partnership, deserves the accolades for a job well done."

With the support of YMCA Board President Ann Zwiebel Revaitis, Krystal Canady, CEO of the YMCA stated proudly, "The YMCA of Eastern Union County is committed to providing exceptional programs and services. The new Five Points Wellness Center Branch is just one of the current projects the YMCA is undertaking in an effort to further meet the needs of the communities we serve."

"This is an exciting time for our YMCA and the local community," said Melynda Mileski, Five Points Branch Executive. "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to support individuals and families achieve personal wellness, develop friendships, and simply take part in healthy, fun activities."

"Working with the YMCA of Eastern Union County is always a pleasure. It is a very satisfying sense of accomplishment to develop a fantastic community amenity such as the Five Points Wellness Center and work with the teams at the YMCA and Del-Sano," said Biber Partnership's Patten.

Del-Sano Contracting Corp began the project in August 2010 and received the Wellness Center Branch approval to open on December 23, 2010. The official grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony took place on May 4, 2011.
