Regional One Health has been recognized as a Fit-Friendly Worksite by the American Heart Association for the fourth year in a row. The designation was upgraded from “Gold” to “Platinum Level” for 2016 based on the demonstration of a positive return on the employee wellness investment within the past year.
“Workplace health continues to be an important way to improve the well-being and engagement of employees, and Regional One Health is a leader in this effort,” said Angela Royston, health and wellness coordinator at Regional One Health. “The platinum designation is a much appreciated recognition of our efforts.”
Being a Fit-Friendly Worksite means the health system is recognized as an employer who champions the health of their employees and works to create a culture of physical activity and health in the workplace. The health and wellness program at Regional One Health provides employees with many opportunities throughout the year to increase physical activity and learn healthy habits. Taking part in employee health screenings, health fairs, wellness classes, exercise classes and physical activity challenges, Regional One Health employees are focusing on health and wellness while at work, home and play.
