Piedmont Health Services embarked on the Healthy Piedmont Program in 2010. The main goal was to help their employees live healthier lifestyles across eight sites and 350 employees. The program team consists of a wellness committee and wellness champions at each location. The committee, in conjunction with the champions, developed a year-long plan to encourage employees to live healthier. They utilized both informational, activity and incentive based methods to accomplish this.
Piedmont Health Services strives to keep healthy behaviors in the forefront of all they do with their staff. This year they held educational sessions during open enrollment, conducted biometric screenings at all locations, encouraged staff to complete the online health assessment and to get their annual physicals/preventative exams. Their efforts were rewarded with a practice wellness grant from the NCMS Employee Benefit Plan (NCMS Plan).
Piedmont Health plans to use the Practice Wellness grant dollars for employee incentives, supplies and additional fitness related materials for staff, in addition to helping to support their annual Healthy Piedmont Picnic.
The NCMS Plan congratulates Piedmont Health on their great achievements.
