Date:5/25/2010

U.S. Preventive Medicine extends disease prevention partnership with Summit, helping people understand and tackle their health risks

Southfield, MI (Vocus) May 25, 2010 -- U.S. Preventive Medicine, Inc. has chosen to renew its three-year partnership with Summit Health to advance the company’s national preventive health agenda.

Under the contract, Summit Health will continue to provide worksite health screening programs for U.S. Preventive Medicine. A workplace screening is the foundation for the company’s high-tech, high-touch prevention benefit called The Prevention Plan. Summit Health's biometric screening is a crucial component in helping The Prevention Plan to identify a participant’s top health risks, provide a personalized plan to improve and sustain his/her health status, and to reduce the risk of disease onset and progression.

"Our partnership and ability to integrate with U.S. Preventive Medicine gives employers the seamless, high-touch and high-quality integrated health management that is vital for long-term employee engagement and return on wellness investment,” said Richard Penington, president of Summit Health. “I’m delighted that we will continue to work with U.S. Preventive Medicine and support their important mission of prevention."

“The Prevention Plan is a complete program based on high-tech, high-touch assessments and interventions that help people understand and tackle their health risks,” said Christopher Fey, Chairman and CEO of U.S. Preventive Medicine. “Blood tests and biometric screenings are an integral component of this customized program and Summit Health has been instrumental in helping us take this program into the worksites of many of our national clients.”

“Employers, government agencies and individuals finally understand the power of prevention in lowering health care costs, and we’re pleased to work with Summit Health as our growth accelerates,” Fey added.
