At Destination D.C.’s 2023 Travel Rally, Chief Development Officer Omar Toro-Vaca joined Mayor Muriel Bowser to announce a new partnership with the District of Columbia – one designed to bring Therme Group’s innovative wellbeing approach to Washington, DC. Therme U.S. and D.C. will partner on identifying a site for a new Therme center that will offer visitors and residents an accessible urban retreat focused on health and wellness.

Over the coming year, Therme will work with the Mayor's Office and collaborate with council members, business leaders, community partners and residents. As every Therme facility responds uniquely to its location, Therme’s initial focus in D.C. will be on establishing partnerships with stakeholders across the city to discover how a facility can best serve community needs.
Therme’s partnership with the City aligns with the Mayor's Comeback Plan, which aims to drive economic recovery across the District. The introduction of a new Therme facility is expected to bring in 7,200 construction jobs over a two-year period, 700-800 permanent operations jobs upon facility stabilization, and an estimated $1.1 Billion in D.C. nominal tax revenue flow over 25 years.
