What does CGH Medical Center provide?

Wellness Education - Free

Employee education is tailored to your work site - literature, educational booths, monthly newsletter and employee health screenings. Pertinent and timely information is offered covering a broad range of health topics presented by CGH staff. Choose what interests you and your employees - all FREE of charge.

  • Heart Disease
  • Women's Health
  • Men's Health
  • Cancer Prevention
  • Nutrition & Fitness

Cholesterol & Glucose Testing - $30 PER EMPLOYEE

How much does it cost for an employee who suffers from heart disease or diabetes? 2,000 times more than the cost of one cholesterol or glucose test! Employees are monitored on-site with the CGH Workplace Wellness Cholestech System, a method which can screen for total cholesterol, LDL (bad cholesterol), HDL (good cholesterol), triglycerides and glucose (blood sugar).  Nurses provide one-on-one consultation and comprehensive education to each employee. The results of  cholesterol screenings are received in a matter of minutes. 

Your company can realize substantial cost savings and improved productivity by reducing insurance costs and employee downtime. You'll also benefit by showing your employees that you care about their health and well-being.

Individualized Wellness Profiles - included in the $30 fee

CGH Workplace Wellness offers a health risk assessment that gives each individual a look at their wellness rights and wrongs and then motivates them to make improvements in their health and lifestyle goals. A short questionnaire is used to determine the participant's health risks.  A 6-page confidential lifestyle report will be returned to the participant in approximately 7-14 days.

An executive summary is provided for the employer to help identify areas where education is needed.

Caring Professionals

Our caring staff will visit your work site and develop a personalized Wellness Program for your employees. The ultimate goal of the CGH Workplace Wellness Program is to motivate employees to take more responsibility and interest in maintaining and improving their health. It is a proven fact that being healthier makes you more productive both at home and at work and increases not only the quality of life but longevity as well.
