Employee Wellness

Ascension’s employee wellness programs can help your organization create the healthy, high-performing culture you need to stay ahead.

Personalized care, comprehensive workplace wellness options

Companies perform well when employees are healthy and happy. But healthy cultures aren’t accidental. They’re the result of wellness strategies that are carefully planned and executed. Ascension’s proactive employee health management programs have been proven to improve performance and reduce healthcare costs.

At Ascension, we view wellness through the eyes of clinicians. Our employee wellness programs are delivered by a diverse group of healthcare professionals, including registered nurse health coaches, registered dietitians, certified Diabetes Educators, and health and wellness specialists.

After a careful assessment of your needs, our team will design a customized wellness strategy that does more than just encourage employee health – it can help you reach your organization’s goals. Whether you’re looking for wellness campaigns, educational programs, biometric screenings or training, our experienced specialists can help. Wellness programs can be offered as a standalone service or in conjunction with an employer-based clinic.

Health coaching and lifestyle management

Recent studies have shown that individual health coaching is a successful tool for helping employees meet their health goals. Our compassionate wellness and health coaches provide personalized consultation to your entire workforce and their dependents. After meeting one-on-one with an employee, they build a customized wellness and health plan for behavior change. We focus on comprehensive education about common health issues to empower your employees and adopt healthy habits and make positive, lasting lifestyle changes such as healthy diet and exercise.

We routinely follow up with health checks for employees, including goal-setting, metrics such as blood pressure, cholesterol and body mass index (BMI), and important health screenings. Whether for weight loss, smoking cessation or other health goals, your employees can take charge of their health to enjoy lifelong physical and mental health and well-being.

Education programs that empower employee health

Proactive health education is designed to increase employee productivity, lower insurance costs and improve the health of your business.

After an assessment of your organization’s needs, we work with you to customize an effective employee wellness education program. Topics may include first aid/CPR training, stress relief and management, smoking cessation, physical therapy, chronic illness and disease management and more. We also raise awareness of workplace stressors and can provide prevention and intervention strategies to lower injury rates, improve health outcomes and increase organizational performance.

Information sessions take place right at your office or worksite and can be held over an hour, a day or even as a month-long workshop. 

Vaccinations to keep employees healthy

Protect your staff and keep your business running smoothly during flu season. Ascension’s on-site immunization clinics offer mobile flu shots and information about vaccinations and flu symptoms.

Although numbers vary from year to year, flu vaccines are proven to reduce cases of influenza infection by more than half, and they’re safe for almost everyone. Before administering any vaccine, our professionals provide comprehensive health assessments and answer any questions.

What our clients are saying

We’re making a difference in employees’ lives

“As a group of 85 employees, our company has participated in the St. Vincent’s Wellness Program for over 3 years. This program has helped us to be more accountable to one another in improving our health and in making lifestyle changes. We now have blood pressure machines scattered all over the office! Change is hard but each of us has committed to individual goals that will make us a healthier company overall.”
-Mims C.

“I like the fact that I can do my annual health screen and check in with my health coach each quarter while at work. No missing work and no risk of getting sick from sitting in a doctor’s office around sick people. The health coaches are all very sweet and helpful. It’s a great way to stay on top of my health because I probably wouldn’t do it on my own. I highly recommend this to all employers so that they can have healthy employees.”
-Carrie B.

“Our Health Coach has become a part of our family here at our company. Most people aren’t afforded the services she offers to us with constant checks on our blood pressure, sugar levels and just our overall mental health. She gives us the steps to improving our lives through proper nutrition, exercise and the balance between work, family and just time for ourselves. I can’t remember a time that I didn’t see her smile. Thank you for everything you do for us.”
