HMHP Earns Well Workplace Gold Designation
Date:6/10/2013

Youngstown, Ohio (PRWEB) June 10, 2013

Humility of Mary Health Partners has earned the WELCOA Well Workplace gold designation for 2013. This national recognition from the Wellness Council of America places HMHP among 16 employers throughout the country and the only employer in Ohio to receive recognition this year.

HMHP received the gold designation, which identifies employers that have successfully developed comprehensive wellness initiatives in the workplace and are documenting concrete outcomes.

“Achieving this designation required a lot of effort,” says Patty Melnykovich, HMHP employee health, wellness and safety officer. “We had to document everything so that the Wellness Council could assess the effectiveness of our employee wellness initiatives and are very pleased with the outcome. This award acknowledges the progress we’re making to help our employees live healthier lives. As a health care provider, we know the effect healthy lifestyles have on improving a person’s quality of life and we want all of our employees to have the best quality of life possible.”

According to WELCOA guidelines, Well Workplace employers fully embrace their responsibility for maximizing the health and well-being of employees and integrate wellness into the overall business strategy.

The Wellness Council of America measures the effectiveness of employee wellness programs against seven benchmarks:

  •     Support of the chief executive officer
  •     Cohesiveness of the wellness team
  •     Collection of data to drive health efforts
  •     Development of an operating plan that defines program goals
  •     Selection of appropriate interventions
  •     Creation of a supportive environment
  •     Consistent evaluation of outcomes

HMHP earned a perfect score for four of the benchmarks and an overall score of 177.49 points out of a possible 180.

“We’re very happy to be recognized by the Wellness Council of America as an employer that makes the health and wellness of our employees a priority,” observes Bob Shroder, CEO. “As health care providers we’re accustomed to doing the best thing for our patients, but as individuals we don’t always take the best care of ourselves. Through our health and wellness initiatives here at Humility of Mary Health Partners, we help our employees take better care of themselves. Whether it’s helping them become more active and lose a few pounds, manage stress or stop smoking, we want to encourage, support and in some cases, reward them for their accomplishments.”

“From CEO support to evaluation of outcomes, Humility of Mary Health Partners has demonstrated that it has successfully met the requirements to achieve this important designation,” says David Hunnicutt, president, Wellness Council of America. “We’re pleased to welcome HMHP into an elite cadre of organizations who have achieved this designation.”
