Health & Wellness
The American Heart Association has awarded Memorial Health national Gold Level recognition for its commitments to employee health and well-being, as measured in the Association’s 2022 Workforce Well-being Scorecard™.
The Scorecard evaluates factors such as mental health policies, organizational well-being strategies to address burnout, health equity measures, employee financial resources, and more to provide a comprehensive assessment of an organization’s culture of health. 381 organizations completed the Scorecard in 2022, and all organizations were recognized with an achievement level of platinum (9%), gold (45%), silver (32%), bronze (9%), or completer (5%).
Debbie Stubbs, Director of the Wellness Center for Memorial Health shares, “Our Wellness Team is honored to be recognized with this Gold Level status from the American Heart Association. We are proud of our wellness programming because we are truly working to change the total health of our organizational team, one employee at a time, while recognizing where they are in their wellness journey. In addition, the pandemic reminded us of the need to focus more of our efforts on employee mental health and to demonstrate how much we care about each team member’s mental well-being. We are elated to provide a comprehensive program of wellness to our growing base of 1100+ employees across the Memorial Family.”
Research has shown that supporting the mental and physical well-being of employees is vital to driving productivity, engagement, and successful business outcomes. By investing in a culture of health in the workplace, organizations can improve employee retention and bolster their organizational reputation.
