Wheaton Named One of America’s Healthiest Companies

The Wellness Council of America (WELCOA) designated Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare a Gold Well Workplace. Wheaton was recognized for successfully building comprehensive worksite wellness initiatives with measurable outcomes.

WELCOA Gold Well Workplace AwardA Wellness Steering Committee, comprised of site-based Wellness Committee chairpersons, oversees the Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare System Associate Wellness Program.

Currently, over 80 percent of Wheaton Franciscan Medical Plan participants participate in the Humana Vitality® wellness program. All Wheaton associates also have the opportunity to participate in site-based wellness programs, including health fairs, walking programs, weight loss challenges, and lunch and learns. In conjunction with the medical plan, disease management programs are also available for plan members who have asthma, diabetes, depression, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease.

"Just as we nurture our patients, it is gratifying to provide our associates the resources to better care for themselves. We know that when our associates are healthy, not only do they miss less work, but they also feel better and are more engaged when they are on the job, and generally have a better quality of life outside of work. Those results in turn set a positive example for our patients and the community as well as enable us to more effectively contain health care costs at large," said John Oliverio, President and CEO of Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare.
