Building a Healthy Community 

The Center for Health Education, on the campus of Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital in Newport, is a regional hub for health-related activities that help people prevent disease and manage chronic conditions to improve quality of life and lower health care costs.

The two-story 12,000 square-foot building includes a community resource center, meeting rooms for support groups and health-related classes, skills and computer labs for health care professionals as well as a teaching kitchen.

Through our monthly class offerings, as well as many other services, we help you live a more healthy life. See our class schedule below.

Built in 2015, the Center was funded through donations to the Pacific Communities Health District Foundation and the District.

Most exercise today is big, strenuous and intense. Yet, small, finely articulated movements are often more effective at relieving pain, “soaking” dehydrated tissues and building greater somatic intelligence. In this seminar, you’ll learn how simple motions can build neural connections and change how you feel in your body as well as how you engage with others out in the world. Please bring a yoga mat or large beach towel. Only human experience necessary.
