As part of our focus on preventative healthcare, Montrose Medicine has developed our own worksite wellness program, HealthyWorks. Our mission is to improve health at the workplace by providing an evidence-based worksite wellness program to employers in Montrose and its surrounding communities.
What is HealthyWorks?
HealthyWorks is an Employer Sponsored Worksite Wellness program designed to help individuals understand their current health status and improve it while at work. We will work closely with the employer to first capture the health status and then implement a completely customized program to meet specific needs and help to achieve health goals.
HealthyWorks at Montrose Medicine
Since completing the first phase of gathering data of the current health status at Montrose Medicine, a several projects are underway with the goal of improving the overall health of the employees. There are groups walking together during breaks, a vegetable garden has been planted, and a pedometer challenge is in progress to see which team among the office staff takes the most steps over the next few months.
The Welllness committee also worked with Courtney, one of our front desk receptionists, to organize a two mile walk for Montrose Medicine to help her support the National Kidney Foundation. The goal was to raise $1,000 and, thanks to the support of providers, staff, and patients, we made it!
