PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Heart Association recently recognized Regence as a Start!

"This honor from the American Heart Association is especially meaningful to us at Regence, as we strive to set an example for our members and the community by building a culture of well-being among our employees," said Amy Walloch, supervisor of Wellness Programs for Regence.
