    How Healthy is Your Company?

    A healthy company is more than a healthy bottom line . . . it is productive employees who feel great and are proud to be part of your team. When employees are healthy and feel great, they have less absenteeism, less work-related injuries, less stress, and improved job satisfaction. This can lead to decreased health insurance premiums and reduced health care costs for your company. More companies are discovering that it is to their advantage to keep employees healthy rather than to care for them when they are sick. You could play a vital part in improving the health and lifestyles of your employees. This is why Lady of the Sea General Hospital is offering its Healthy Pathways Worksite Wellness Program.

    Why Wellness? Why Now?

    Wellness and prevention can make a positive impact on your companies' bottom line. In fact, for many companies, unnecessary medical costs may consume a large portion of company profits and employee paychecks. Health insurance premiums and healthcare costs are continuing to rise dramatically. More than 60% of the nation's population do not meet recommended amounts of physical activity. Over half of all Americans are overweight, and obesity is reaching monumental proportions. Poor eating habits are common among many Americans. These issues are major risk factors in the development of chronic diseases such as heart disease, hypertension, diabetes and some forms of cancer. The time is now to do something about these alarming facts.

    What can your company do about these important issues?

    Take care of your employees now and possibly prevent these chronic diseases from costing your company many dollars later. Because most Americans are working and spending most of their waking hours in the workplace, it is the ideal setting to address the issue of health and well-being. It makes good business sense for employers to have an interest in their employees' health.

    How can Lady of the Sea General Hospital help your company?

    Healthy Pathways offered by Lady of the Sea General Hospital can come in to your workplace and screen your employees for the risk factors that may lead to obesity, heart disease, diabetes and hypertension. Based on the screening, we can educate and follow up with your staff on ways to reduce their risk factors. This can ultimately save lives and company dollars using our preventive services.

    Exactly what tests does Healthy Pathways cover?

    • Metabolic Syndrome Risk Criteria including:
      • HDL Cholesterol
      • Triglycerides
      • Blood Pressure
      • Blood Glucose
      • Waist Circumference
    • Total Cholesterol
    • LDL Cholesterol
    • Height
    • Weight
    • Body Mass Index
    • Body Fat Analysis

    What are the costs to enroll my company in Healthy Pathways?
