The fitness center includes a weight room, aerobic room, and locker/shower areas.

The wellness center provides rehabilitation space for treatment of asthma, cardio respiratory, and sickle cell anemia.

The center enables its strong health science programs to integrate a teaching practicum with a major New York City hospital.

In 2007, Counsilman-Hunsaker provided support for regulatory approval from the Health Department and Department of Environmental Protection for the addition of a 96 sq. ft. therapy pool, which is equipped with a hydraulic moveable floor, internal treadmill, and a swim-in-place Badu Jet system.
