The Walton family is promoting employee health by investing $225 million to build a 360,000-square-foot fitness center and a 73,000-square-foot childcare center at Walmart’s corporate headquarters in Bentonville.
According to a press release, the construction is underway, and the new Walton Family Whole Health & Fitness plans to open to members in late 2023.
“Whole Health Institute addresses physical, mental, emotional and social factors that affect well-being,” said Walt Cooper, CEO of Whole Health Institute. “The intentional design of Walton Family Whole Health & Fitness brings that vision to life by creating an environment that goes beyond physical fitness to make holistic health achievable.”
The company published a virtual tour and overview of the new facilities at the Walmart website.
“Providing associates with easy access to offerings that enhance health and well-being is an essential element of whole health,” said Alice Walton. “Our family is delighted to provide the support for these innovative resources.”
