Sonoma Valley Hospital and Parkpoint Health Clubs Launch Compass Health Assessment Center

December 30, 2013

Compass LogoSonomaValleyHospital and Parkpoint Health Clubs have announced the opening of CompassHealthAssessmentCenter on Saturday, January 11. The new facility, located next to Parkpoint Health Club in Sonoma, is a special collaboration to support community health by providing access to comprehensive health and fitness resources at a single location.

Compass provides an integrated approach to health and fitness, bringing together Parkpoint fitness professionals and Hospital clinicians. The Center uses state-of-the-art technology to help participants assess their level of health and fitness, and then provides professional support to identify realistic individual goals and move forward with a personalized plan.

“Compass grows out of the shared desire of the Hospital and Parkpoint to improve the health of our community,” said Kelly Mather, Sonoma Valley Hospital CEO. “We believe it is valuable to provide the community with access to the special health and fitness resources that Compass offers. We intend for this facility to help everyone, from those just starting out to those who wish to move to a higher level of fitness.” Mather noted that Dr. Suzannah Bozzone, Medical Director of Wellness at SonomaValleyHospital, is leading Hospital wellness outreach efforts such as this for the community. 

“Compass represents an effort to rethink how we can help people become healthier and achieve greater fitness,” said Jennifer Anderson, Parkpoint Clubs General Manager. “What makes the program unique is its highly personalized approach. We can draw on a range of tests for an individual assessment that helps us to identify what steps are needed for each participant to see meaningful improvements.”

According to Mel Salada, Compass Wellness Director, Compass offers four different packages, all reasonably priced, that will meet the needs of just about everyone no matter their current level of health and fitness.

Compass assessments are conducted in a new facility adjacent to the Parkpoint Health Club in the MaxwellShopping Center off of Highway 12. The Grand Opening kicks off on January 11 with a panel of integrative health providers from SonomaValleyHospital’s Integrative Health Network (IHN) who will discuss ways to create a successful New Year’s health resolution. 

Over the following week (January 13th – 16th), the opening continues with activities, workshops and ask-an-expert sessions involving members of the Compass team and the IHN.  Discussions will cover nutrition, goal setting, functional movements, and relaxation.  For a complete schedule of presenters and topics, visit the Compass website at
