“Viverae assisted CHC in framing the importance of employee wellness within our overall people strategy. As a healthcare organization, we want our employees to live healthier and more productive lives, as their success is integral to our success. We are delighted and honored to receive this award from Viverae,” said Michael D. Williams, President and chief executive officer of Community Hospital Corporation.

 

CHC partnered with Viverae in 2009 to launch a robust program that would decrease the number of employees at risk in specific benchmark categories. Primary improvements were in increased activity and nutrition habits in addition to a dramatic risk reduction in LDL cholesterol and cardiac risk ratio. In addition, CHC wanted to understand overall employee health status through health assessments and biometric screenings and to get employees to participate at a meaningful level that would yield results.

 

“With rising medical and pharmaceutical costs, CHC executives were looking to curb health care spend and turned to Viverae for help to jumpstart a program,” Nadeau said. “We have been successful working as a team to produce dramatic results for the overall health of the company.” To motivate employees to live healthier, CHC from 2009 to 2010, evolved their wellness program that continues to receive advocacy in areas of management involvement, outcomes-based incentives, communications and program innovation. All components contribute to CHC’s recognition of being an employer that focuses on being at the forefront of health and wellness.
