Grand View Health of Sellersville has renamed its Industrial Medicine program as Workplace Health & Wellness.
Grand View said the name change reflects its renewed commitment to offer occupational health solutions that address the needs of the working community. The move marks the relaunching and expansion of its programming in that field.
The role of Workplace Health & Wellness is to provide employers and their employees with convenient access to health and wellness services where they spend the majority of their day, at work.
The program partners with local employers to provide comprehensive health care services and wellness programs designed to shape a safer, healthier workplace.
“Since wellness programs are linked to improved productivity, reduced absenteeism and a decrease in long-term health care costs, we can help employers reduce illness and injury and keep employees healthy,” said Michael Keen, senior vice president and chief financial officer for Grand View Health.
Programming includes services such as new-hire physical examinations, drug testing, immunizations, training and workplace injury care management.
The program places an emphasis on education through health fairs, lunch-and-learn lectures and training sessions with a goal to help employers create a healthier workforce while strengthening their bottom line.
Keen said the initiative will “allow us to pursue working relationships with local employers and provide them with clinical services, advice on health cost reduction initiatives and facilitate employee access to Grand View Health services.”
Grand View said the program serves more than 500 employers in Bucks and Montgomery counties, from small, family owned businesses to larger companies.
