Winnipeg's Reh-Fit Centre has been named the 2012 Certified Facility of the Year by the Medical Fitness Association.

"This is the best facility of its kind in the world," Healthy Living Minister Jim Rondeau said.

The annual award is presented to a certified medical fitness facility that "serves as a benchmark for the industry and whose results others can emulate."

Rondeau said the centre is important because of a belief that the province should "move fitness into health and make sure exercise is medicine."

In June, the Reh-Fit Centre, 1390 Taylor Avenue near Ash Street, announced it had been recognized by the Medical Fitness Association as Canada's first and only certified medical fitness facility.

The centre's programs works with patients existing doctors to develop health and fitness plans to manage patients reliance on medical care and prescription drugs.
