Meadville, PA - Meadville Medical Center (MMC) is proud to announce its
recognition as one of the "Healthiest Companies in America"
by Interactive Health, a national provider known for its preventive health
programs that encourage employees to adopt new health habits. MMC is one
of 184 companies across the country recognized this year for empowering
employees to make significant and somtimes life-saving changes to improve
their health. This is the SIXTH year MMC has won the award.
"We are honored to be recognized as one of America's Healthiest
Companies for the sixth consecutive year. This outstanding achievement
takes great dedication and initiative from our employees. Our goal is
to maintain a healthy workforce and improve the health of at-risk staff
members, " noted Philip Pandolph, MMC CEO.
Participants in Interactive Health's programs receive a thorough health
evaluation to identify risk and learn about their health status. This
evaluation is often more thorough than what patients receive during routine
visits to primary care doctors. Their new-found health status motivates
them to adopt new habits, which Interactive health supports through year-round
personalized digital tools, coaching and individualized health goals,
and other resources, which is what contributed to MMC being named among
the country's healthiest companies.
With the help of effective preventive health initiatives, Interactive Health's
"Healthiest Companies in America" recipients have reached or
exceeded an exemplary 70 percent participation rate in their organization's
wellness program, and their workforce's overall health risk was low,
based on the results of an annual health evaluation that involves a blood
draw, lab tests and a detailed questionnaire.
"Because of our hard work, Meadville Medical Center continues to be
named one of the "Healthiest Companies in America" by Interactive
Health. Only 184 companies achieved this status in 2017, wwe are truly
among an elite group. Congratulations to all employees that have participated
in our wellness program!" said Greg Maras, VP of Human Resources.
