Syracuse, NY – Nascentia Health has been named one of the “Healthiest Companies in America” for 2018 by Interactive Health, a leading provider of health management solutions.

Nascentia is among 151 honorees from across the United States recognized for empowering employees to make significant and sometimes life-saving changes to improve their health. This is the first year the system has been recognized.

Participants in Interactive Health’s wellness program receive a thorough health evaluation to identify risk and learn about their health status. Through a combination of rapid outreach, connection to personal physicians, and tailored resources, a personalized course of action is delivered to the participant, resulting in improved or maintained health. In 2018, more than 120 Nascentia Health employees and their family members participated in the program, with about 90 percent of participants in the moderate to low risk category.

Furthering Nascentia’s commitment to a healthy work environment are its on-site employee fitness center, employee-staffed Health and Wellness Committee, sit-to-stand desks, and ongoing wellness initiatives, including weekly exercise programs and Lunch & Learn sessions offered through a partnership with Metro Fitness, monthly step trackers and exercise tips for field staff, free membership to either of Metro Fitness’ locations, team sports, and participation in several local charity runs and walks.

“The best employers, like Nascentia Health, figure out a way to differentiate themselves and show employees that they care,” said Interactive Health President and CEO Bill Goldberg. “Investing in the health of your employees not only achieves that goal but has far-reaching implications across the organization. A healthier workforce is one that is happier, more engaged and more productive.”

Participants in Nascentia’s Interactive Health program have gained access to year-round personalized digital tools, coaching, wellness challenges, and fresh information about their health, empowering them to adopt new habits and keep health and wellness at the core of their daily lives, both personal and professional.

“This award is a true testament to our employees’ commitment to living a healthy lifestyle,” said Kate Rolf, President and CEO. “At Nascentia, wellness is an essential cultural value that has been embraced throughout the organization.
