HCA Virginia’s workplace wellness services bridge the gap between traditional wellness programs and local doctors and providers, ensuring your employees are connected with the most effective health programs for their unique needs. As a part of HCA Virginia, Henrico Doctors’ Hospital’s workplace wellness services include the following.
Education, training and support
The business health professionals at HCA Virginia offer a wide range of wellness classes and programs that can be customized to meet the needs of your employees and the goals of your business. Choose convenient sites where your employees can come to learn more about taking charge of their own health through education and training on nutrition, weight management, smoking cessation, behavior modification and beyond.
Having a primary care physician and getting an annual examination can help employees stay well by detecting diseases and conditions in their earlier stages, but approximately 40 percent of employees do not have a primary care provider. Our PCP Connect program is designed to help employees stay healthy by finding the right primary care provider not only for themselves, but for the whole family.
Our team of registered nurses provide onsite biometric screenings to help your employees understand the current status of their health. From there, we build customized solutions to improve their health and wellness, if needed. We work to increase employee productivity and drive down healthcare costs. Additionally, we can arrange mammogram screenings, prostate screenings, skin cancer screenings and much more.
Personal health assessments
We provide a combination of personal health assessments and biometric screenings to gain a complete picture of the health of your workplace. An added bonus of partnering with us is that you own the aggregate data of your workforce, unlike other PHA providers. Ownership of the data allows your human resources and wellness professionals to monitor and trend your employees’ health status over time.
At HCA Virginia and Henrico Doctors’ Hospital we maintain all tests, assessments, results and participants' files to privacy standards set by The Joint Commission, a healthcare provider accrediting agency, and the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA).
