Hospitals doing more to keep employees healthy

Hospitals in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut are devoting more resources to keeping their employees healthy these days. That’s among findings of a new survey by Cammack LaRhette Consulting, which surveyed the medical and prescription drug plans of 45 hospitals in the area.

Researchers found that 84 percent of the responding hospitals currently offer some form of wellness program or activity. Another 5 percent plan to establish a program in the next 12 months. The types of activities include tobacco cessation programs, fitness and gym discounts, healthy cooking demonstrations, Weight Watchers® at Work, and biometric screenings.

Increasingly, hospitals are developing wellness programs internally rather than relying on outside vendors. The survey found as well that 81 percent of hospitals have executive-level support for their wellness initiatives.

 “The benefits of wellness programs are twofold; healthier employees will certainly impact an organization’s bottom line, and hospitals are coming up with new, innovative ways to increase employee participation,” said Cammack LaRhette principal Mary Clark.
