ASSOCIATES IN FAMILY MEDICINE TAKES HOME WELLNESS AWARD

Cigna honors medical organization with well-being recognition.

 

July 29, 2014 – Associates in Family Medicine (AFM) has received Cigna’s Well-Being Award for “Outstanding Culture of Well-Being.” As the recipient of the award, Associates in Family Medicine beat out more than a dozen other regional applicants.

Cigna’s Well-Being Award recognizes organizations that have a primary goal to improve the health of employees and their families through advocacy programs; incentives for maintaining or improving behaviors; integrated coaching services; interactive communications; and benefits that generate convenience, cost savings, and employee engagement. The recipients of these awards shine as examples of how the workplace can serve as the entry point to improving health and wellness.

AFM staff and providers know that having healthy employees ultimately means better patient care. The organization has offered a wellness program for several years, with its initial wellness committee established in 2010. This year, AFM started providing free lifestyle and wellness coaching for employees to help them find a good balance between work life, personal life, and wellness.

What began as a simple fitness chart where employees could track their exercise to win a prize at the end of the month has become a fully integrated, comprehensive workplace wellness program. Persistence and passion continue to fuel both the program and the successes the AFM staff experienced so far throughout its eight Northern Colorado offices.

“This award is really all about the staff,” said Eva Cassel, Associates in Family Medicine’s Worksite Wellness and Marketing Coordinator. “The majority of our employees who maximize their participation in our wellness initiatives do so for reasons other than just the incentives; they know that their healthy behaviors make a big impact on quality of life. Their enthusiasm for making these important choices is why our employee wellness program is successful.”
