VA Whole Health Program

The Tampa YMCA and the VA have partnered to make healthy living programs accessible to veterans! Veterans who have been referred by their Whole Health coach at the James A. Haley Veterans Hospital are eligible to attend the Y for 12 weeks and participate in recommended Y programs, including but not limited to:  Yoga, Tai Chi, Pilates, Y Weight and Water Aerobics. 

We welcome our veterans to come to the Y as many times as they would like during their 12 weeks. After the first 12 weeks, veterans may ask their VA Whole Health coach to renew the 12-week pass only if they visited the Y a minimum of 19 times during their first 12 week pass. Veterans should be sure to scan in at the Welcome Center every time they visit the Y to eligible for a renewal pass! Veterans are allowed one support person to attend the Y with them for the 12 weeks.

Referred Veterans Receive:

  • Free membership for 12 weeks
  • Unlimited access, visit the Y at least 19 times (scan in at each visit) 
  • Option to renew free membership (if requirements are met)
